Test Both Aflatoxins and Zearalenone, Same Solvent-free Sample
Romer Labs® introduces its new AgraStrip® Total Zearalenone Quantitative WATEX test kit. The new water-based method will allow food, feed and grain producers to test for Zearalenone without using organic solvents, such as methanol, which are expensive, flammable, and must be disposed as hazardous waste.
Romer Labs new AgraStrip® WATEX test kit line significantly speeds up the workflow and simplifies the ease-of-use. The innovative and unique all-in-one extraction enables the customer to test for both, Aflatoxins and Zearalenone, out of the same sample extract. With new dissolvable and pre-weighed extraction buffer bags no time-consuming or difficult buffer preparations steps are needed. No filtration or centrifugation step is needed due to innovative extraction equipment that is included in each test kit, making the use of additional extract clarification obsolete.
With a quantitation range of 0-1000 ppb, a limit of detection of 30.2 ppb and a total time-to-results of 8 minutes the AgraStrip® Total Zearalenone Quantitative WATEX test kit is the fastest test on the market, meeting the industry needs for a simple, sensitive and easy-to-use test kit.
Over the next months, the new AgraStrip® WATEX test kit line will be further expanded to cover regulated mycotoxins.
