Romer Labs has received approval from the AOAC Research Institute for its quantitative AgraStrip® Pro Total Aflatoxin WATEX® test kit (PTM certification 032402). The test kit was approved for its high-sensitive method for quantifying total aflatoxin (B1, B2, G1, and G2) in corn and peanut paste within the range of 1.5-50 parts per billion (ppb).

The AgraStrip Pro WATEX test kits, integral to Romer Labs’ portfolio of advanced testing solutions, are state-of-the-art lateral flow devices designed for rapid and effective on-site detection of mycotoxins in a variety of agricultural commodities. The test kits are available not only for total aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1, and G2) but also for deoxynivalenol, ochratoxin A, zearalenone, total fumonisins (B1, B2, B3), and T-2/HT-2 toxins.

When used alongside the AgraVision™ Pro reader—which manages timing, temperature, and flow in a streamlined process—the system facilitates the seamless testing of multiple samples and mycotoxins in under 10 minutes. This innovative methodology boosts throughput and accuracy while significantly reducing the likelihood of common procedural errors.
