Solvent-free Detection of Ochratoxin A in Green Coffee and Wheat

VICAM® has introduced a rapid, eco-friendly lateral flow strip test specifically for the detection of ochratoxin A in green coffee and wheat. Compared to traditional methods, the Ochra-V® AQUA™ reduces ochratoxin A testing time by half and eliminates the use of organic solvents completely.

Traditional laboratory-based methods of ochratoxin A monitoring can take a substantial amount of time and resources to complete. The Ochra-V AQUA enables on-site monitoring that provides precise quantitative results minutes after sample extraction. This allows producers and processers the ability to quickly select safe, high quality raw materials for milling (wheat) and roasting (coffee).

The Ochra-V AQUA is the latest in a series of solvent-free testing solutions from VICAM that can be used with the Vertu® lateral flow strip test reader. The Afla-V® AQUA™ (aflatoxins), Fumo-V® AQUA™ (fumonisin) and DON-V® (vomitoxin) are also available.
