Romer Labs has introduced AgraStrip® WATEX--an extended line of water-based mycotoxin test kits that enable the testing for multiple mycotoxins from the same sample extract.

AgraStrip® WATEX test kits are available for aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1, G2), deoxynivalenol and zerealenone and provide a fast, simple and eco-friendly solution for on-site mycotoxin testing. Tests for total fumonisins and ochratoxin A are in the final stages of development.

“The test kits are optimized to extract mycotoxins using distilled water in combination with an extraction buffer. That and the fact that the same extract can actually be used to test for multiple mycotoxins make AgraStrip® WATEX the product of choice for simple, fast and eco-friendly mycotoxin detection.” says Dr. Kurt Brunner, R&D Director at Romer Labs.

AgraStrip® WATEX test kits are quantitative tests. Used with the AgraVision® reader, these test kits provide objective results and secure a consistent result documentation. All test kits come with Whirl-Pak® bags that contain integrated filter membranes. As such, there is no longer any need for additional extract clarification equipment like centrifuges or filters.

The incubator that controls the ambient test temperature and the dust- and dirt-resistant AgraVision®reader make the AgraStrip® test system very robust and well suited for on-site mycotoxin testing.
