Six Charm Mycotoxin Tests using WET (Water Extraction Technology)
A breakthrough Charm® technology, WET, has been expanded to include the following ROSA mycotoxin tests: aflatoxin (USDA GIPSA approved), vomitoxin (DON or deoxynivalenol), fumonisin, zearalenone, ochratoxin, and T-2/HT-2 toxin.
For the first time, mycotoxins in grain and feed can be safely and rapidly tested without the use of ethanol and methanol. Testing can now be safely moved from a laboratory setting to proactive testing on raw ingredients coming into a plant prior to receipt.
The five-minute test procedure is simple:
- Sample is extracted using a biodegradable powder with water.
- Operators screen for multiple mycotoxins using a single WET extract sample.
- Extract and slurry from WET extractions can be disposed in regular waste.
- All ROSA tests using WET are compatible with the existing ROSA-M Reader or the Charm EZ®-M system.
All the advantages of improving worker safety, protecting the environment, avoiding fire hazards, and reducing the accumulation of hazardous chemical waste are now possible using ROSA WET.
