Charm Sciences, Inc. received approval from USDA’s Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) verifying the performance of ROSA WET Aflatoxin Quantitative Test.
The ROSA WET Aflatoxin Quantitative Test provides quantitative aflatoxin results in 5 minutes using Water Extraction Technology (WET), an extraction method that uses a non-hazardous extraction powder added to the sample followed by water to extract aflatoxin.
The 5 minute quantitative test is GIPSA approved for 16 commodities: barley, corn, corn flour, corn germ meal, corn gluten meal, corn meal, corn/soy blend, DDGS, hominy, oats, popcorn, rice bran (defatted), rough rice, sorghum, soybeans, and wheat.
“The ROSA WET Aflatoxin Quantitative Test provides the feed and grain industry with a simple and convenient lateral flow test for quantitative detection of aflatoxin using water for extraction,” says Charm’s John Jabour.
“The Water Extraction Technology provides a sustainable solution to monitor mycotoxins that eliminates the storage, shipping, and disposal requirements necessary with ethanol or methanol extraction.”
