  1. New Solutions for the Detection of Agrisure Duracade™ Corn

    Romer Labs’ AgraStripTraitChek eCry3.1Ab lateral flow tests are an easy to use, accurate and affordable detection system. The TraitChek system allows for the qualitative detection of one (1) Agrisure Duracade corn kernel in 400 non-Agrisure Duracade kernels (0.25%) at the grain elevator with results visualized in 3 to 5 minutes. This rapid, sensitive test strip format provides the best sensitivity for the detection of Agrisure Duracade corn currently available which expedites grain processing. Also available are the
    AgraStrip SeedChek eCry3.1Ab lateral flow and ELISA-based systems to rapidly test seed lots for quality control requirements as well as leaf tissue samples in the field or lab.

    Romer Labs sells an extensive portfolio of GMO testing products in lateral flow and ELISA formats. This includes bulk grain tests for Vip3A (MIR162) corn and CSPB corn which are also unapproved traits in some markets .

  2. New water-based rapid test for Total Aflatoxin

    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.

  3. Romer Labs® Collaborates with Feed the Future Initiative

    This Feed the Future Innovation Lab is part of the U.S. government's Feed the Future initiative to reduce global hunger and improve food security. The initiative uses research, education and outreach to advance solutions to hunger, poverty, and under-nutrition in low-income countries.

    The project aims to provide global leadership to reduce post-harvest loss (PHL) and food waste of durable staple crops (grains, oilseeds, legumes, root crops, seeds) and their processed value-added products with an initial focus on four Feed the Future (FtF) countries (Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Ghana, and Guatemala). Interventions under this project will integrate smallholder farmers, producer cooperatives, and agribusiness enterprises with market-based value chains.

    A key challenge in a number of Feed the Future countries is high moisture content of grains (especially maize) at harvest and presence of high mycotoxin levels (especially aflatoxin) at harvest and postharvest due to improper drying and storage practices.

    The initial pilot projects in Guatemala and Ghana will involve assessing the level of the problem faced by small holder farmers and the first market collection points, and ways to address this problem. Current practices allow for wet maize that often contains high levels of aflatoxin to enter the market and be consumed by farmers and villagers causing nutrition and health problems for children and adults.

    Romer Labs’ AgraStrip Aflatoxin and Fumonisin test strips and AgraVision reader will be used in these remote growing areas to assess the extent of the mycotoxin contamination. Using the data obtained in the study, the goal is to enhance the drying, conditioning, handling, storage, pest management and transportation of these crops thus increasing the quantity and quality of the grain available for human consumption and decreasing food waste.

    About Feed the Future Innovation Lab:
    The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for the Reduction of Post-Harvest Loss is a strategic and applied research and education program aimed at providing global leadership in food security by reducing post-harvest loss and food waste of durable staple crops (grains, oilseeds, legumes, root crops, seeds) and their processed value-added products. This program will require confronting constraints on integrating smallholder farmers, producer cooperatives, and agribusiness enterprises with market-based value chains from seed to end-user. Post-Harvest Loss (PHL) estimates are distressingly high considering the current and estimated future need for food. These losses represent food already in the production system that could have been used to reduce food insecurity and hunger and to increase food quality/safety, nutrition, and market opportunities for the small landholder. PHL reduces real income for all consumers, which especially affects the poor, because such a high percentage of their disposable income is devoted to staple foods. PHL reduction also has significant gender implications since staple food production in most developing countries is the responsibility of women. For more information please visit. www.reducePHL.org
