I am doing a project on bread mould and I an designing a household indicator to 
dectect early presence of bread mould before they are visible to the eyes. 

Since bread produces mycotoxins (as a by-product) during germination, they can be 
harmful to the body if taken in. Therefore, by dectecting the presence of 
mycotoxins I might be able to detect the presence of mold before it is visible
to the eye. Hence, consumers would be able to safeguard their health. 

Is there a quick way to detect mycotoxins in this way?
Thank you.
