Micotox Ltda. was founded in 1994 with the objective of fulfilling the need for a highly technical company specialized in mycotoxin testing and mycotoxin control in Colombia and the Andean region. During its first years, Micotox represented leading international companies in Colombia and distributed their products and services. Some of these business relationships still exist. In the year 2000, and after several years of research, Micotox introduced in the market the Micotox Series 2000 clean-up cartridges for the purification of mycotoxins. Micotox® cartridges are offered in multifunctional (one-step) and conventional SPE (multi-step) formats. Micotox cartridges are used by most of the laboratories in Colombia and are also sold in Brazil, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Venezuela and Europe. Our company also offers high quality analytical services on its new premises established in 2004 equipped with state of the art analytical instrumentation.
