LAMP-PCR detection of ochratoxigenic Aspergillus species collected from peanut kernel

H. M. Al-Sheikh, LAMP-PCR detection of ochratoxigenic Aspergillus species collected from peanut kernel, vol. 14, pp. 634-644, 2015.

Over the last decade, ochratoxin A (OTA) has been widely described and is ubiquitous in several agricultural products. Ochratoxins represent the second-most important mycotoxin group after aflatoxins. A total of 34 samples were surveyed from 3 locations, including Mecca, Madina, and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, during 2012. Fungal contamination frequency was determined for surface-sterilized peanut seeds, which were seeded onto malt extract agar media.
