PerkinElmer Offers New Corn Aflatoxin Strip Test
Covers aflatoxins B1 B2, G1 and G2, at detection levels of 2 to 300 ppb, in six minutes
PerkinElmer Inc. launches its AuroFlow™ AQ Afla strip test, which helps lab professionals, technicians and farmers quickly and accurately conduct first-round screening for toxic compounds in corn.
The strip test, used with PerkinElmer’s QuickSTAR™ Horizon strip reader, delivers results for mycotoxins, including aflatoxins like B1 B2, G1 and G2, at detection levels of 2 to 300 parts per billion, in six minutes.
PerkinElmer now offers a comprehensive solution for grain mycotoxin testing across environments – from in-field analysis and small lab settings using strip testing with the handheld reader, to analysis at large processors and contract labs leveraging PerkinElmer’s advanced QSight® 400 Series Triple Quad Mass Spectrometer, which analyzes multiple types of mycotoxins in grain products.
The new strip test also broadens PerkinElmer’s overall portfolio of food safety and quality instruments, analysis software, testing kits and services. These offerings cover plant-to-product and are utilized globally for pesticide, heavy metal and solvent analysis, nutritional and compositional testing, as well as adulteration and food fraud detection.
