Charm WET® uses water to extract sample

Charm WET improves worker safety, protects the environment, avoids fire hazards, and reduces the accumulation of hazardous chemical waste.

Lawrence, MA (PRWEB) May 14, 2013

A breakthrough Charm® technology, WET, has been expanded to include the following ROSA mycotoxin tests: aflatoxin (USDA GIPSA approved), vomitoxin (DON or deoxynivalenol), fumonisin, zearalenone, ochratoxin, and T-2/HT-2 toxin.

For the first time, mycotoxins in grain and feed can be safely and rapidly tested without the use of ethanol and methanol. Testing can now be safely moved from a laboratory setting to proactive testing on raw ingredients coming into a plant prior to receipt.

The five-minute test procedure is simple:

-Sample is extracted using a biodegradable powder with water.

-Operators screen for multiple mycotoxins using a single WET extract sample.

-Extract and slurry from WET extractions can be disposed in regular waste.

-All ROSA tests using WET are compatible with the existing ROSA-M Reader or the Charm EZ®-M system.*

All the advantages of improving worker safety, protecting the environment, avoiding fire hazards, and reducing the accumulation of hazardous chemical waste are now possible using ROSA WET.

*The Charm EZ-M system further simplifies the testing procedure as follows:

-Combined incubator and reader, can be used as a reader only for high volume batch testing

-Automatically identifies the type of mycotoxin test being run by color coding and loads calibration parameters

-Fully customizable to identify the type of commodity being analyzed

-Built-in self diagnostics to help operators avoid errors

-Touch screen interface and sophisticated data management allow for integration with barcode scanners, RFID readers, Ethernet connectivity, and Laboratory Information Management Systems

-Multilingual
