Mycotoxins

Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites of molds, contaminating a wide range of crop plants and fruits. Such contaminated crops are toxic to humans and animals, and hence, a major health issue for the consumer.

To ensure food and feed safety, more than 100 countries have established regulations for mycotoxins in food and feed. Consequently, reliable and efficient mycotoxin testing solutions are paramount.

With over 30 years of experience in this field, Romer Labs offers the most comprehensive portfolio of mycotoxin testing solutions.

AgraStrip®Lateral Flow Devices

The AgraStrip® test kits are ready-to-use lateral flow devices (LFD) for on-site testing. These allow a rapid analysis of a wide range of food and feed samples with a assay time of 3 minutes.

The test kits are available in a qualitative or quantitative format. While qualitative LFDs can be read visually, quantitative tests are used with the AgraVision™ reader, to provide objective results and secure a consistent results documentation.

The test kits come complete with strips, antibody coated microwells, an assay buffer, pipette tips and Whirl-Pak® bags.
