Romer Labs launches extended line of water-based mycotoxin test kits
Romer Labs expands its reputed mycotoxin testing portfolio with the launch of AgraStrip® WATEX.
The product is an extended line of water-based mycotoxin test kits that enable testing for multiple mycotoxins from the same sample extract.
AgraStrip® WATEX test kits are available for aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1, G2), deoxynivalenol and zerealenone and provide a fast, simple and eco-friendly solution for on-site mycotoxin testing. Tests for total fumonisins and ochratoxin A are in the final stages of development.
"The test kits are optimised to extract mycotoxins using distilled water in combination with an extraction buffer. That and the fact that the same extract can actually be used to test for multiple mycotoxins make AgraStrip® WATEX the product of choice for simple, fast and eco-friendly mycotoxin detection." Dr. Kurt Brunner, R&D director at Romer Labs, said.
All test kits come with Whirl-Pak® bags that contain integrated filter membranes. As such, there is no longer any need for additional extract clarification equipment like centrifuges or filters.
The incubator that controls the ambient test temperature and the dust- and dirt-resistant AgraVision® reader make the AgraStrip® test system very robust and well suited for on-site mycotoxin testing.
