| Charm Sciences, Inc. has received approval from the United States Department of Agriculture´s Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) on a 3 minute quantitative detection of aflatoxin in corn, the fastest quantitative kit for official testing in the national grain inspection system. |
Charm Sciences continues to set the standard in speed, simplicity and sensitivity via the ROSA® platform (Rapid One Step Assay). The ROSA Fast AFQ
Charm´s vision is to predict the needs of it´s customers, and to develop the appropriate methods, technologies, and tools tailor-made for the grain industry, from on-farm to the grain processor to the export elevator. ROSA Fast AFQ is such an example as it provides the grain industry a more efficient and economical way to quantitatively detect aflatoxin in corn, assuring even greater speed in the transportation, import and export of grain.
ROSA Aflatoxin companion tests are also approved at qualitative 10 and 20 ppb thresholds in corn and for quantitative detection in corn flour, corn germ meal, corn gluten meal, corn meal, corn screenings, corn soy blend, cracked corn, distillers dried grains, flaking corn grits, milled rice, popcorn, rough rice, sorghum, soybeans, wheat, rye, oats, and distillers dried grains with solubles. ROSA Fast AFQ is the eighth ROSA mycotoxin test to receive a certificate of conformance from USDA GIPSA. All ROSA mycotoxin tests can be run on the same equipment, follow a similar assay format, and are uniquely packaged to ensure the test strip only comes in contact with the sample.
