Description

Aflatoxin – a carcinogenic mycotoxin found in groundnut (and other produce e.g. maize, chillies, rice, tree nuts etc.) produced by a fungus Aspergillus flavus – can cause liver damage, malnutrition, immune suppression and cancer. Aflatoxin contamination is also responsible for millions of dollars in trade loss for farmers, processors and exporters. Detecting and quantifying aflatoxins in a raw sample using fluorescence properties coupled with artificial intelligence is a non-invasive method which can be used for grading and segregating contaminated agricultural produce leading to higher returns to the grower by targeting export markets.
