The test kits have been significantly improved to simplify the ease of use and to speed up the workflow. With the 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 0-100 ppb, a limit of detection of 3ppb and a total time-to-results of 8 minutes including extraction, sample preparation and strip test development, the AgraStrip® Total Aflatoxin Quantitative WATEX test kit is the fastest test available on the market, meeting the industry needs for a simple, sensitive and easy-to-use test kit.
“With our new AgraStrip Watex test kit line we fulfill the needs of our customers for an environment-friendly water-based testing method. At the same time we have further simplified the extraction and sample preparation with work-flow innovations offering customers a testing solution that is accurate, easy-to-use and delivers results fast”, states Michael Prinster, CEO of Romer Labs America.
Over the next months, the new AgraStrip® WATEX test kit line will be further expanded to cover regulated mycotoxins.
