USDA-GIPSA (Grain Inspection, Packers & Stockyards Administration) has approved Charms newest quantitative test for the detection of 5 to 100 ppb aflatoxin in a single 5 minute assay. The ROSA WET-S5 Aflatoxin Quantitative Test (AFQ-WETS5) utilizes Charms patented Water Extraction Technology (WET), eliminating the need for ethanol or methanol to extract mycotoxins.

Lawrence, MA (PRWEB) August 28, 2014

This kit has an improved extraction efficiency and provides users a single test to screen from 0 to 150 ppb, said Mark Tess, PhD, Mycotoxin Product Manager for Charm Sciences. This test is a significant benefit to plant owners and USDA-GIPSA inspection agencies that have a need to detect aflatoxin in corn and other commodities. Testing can take place in a matter of minutes with nothing but our equipment and water. Not only can the plant test the feed and grain before accepting it, but they no longer have to store and dispose of flammable/hazardous materials, improving safety and reducing costs.

The Charm Rosa AFQ-WETS5 is approved for the following 14 commodities: Barley, Corn, Corn Flour, Corn Grits, Corn Meal, Corn Screenings, Corn/Soy Blend, Distillers Dried Grain with Solubles (DDGS), Hominy, Oats, Rough Rice, Sorghum, Soybeans and Wheat.
