Waters Corporation announced that VICAM, a Waters Business, now offers a single extraction method for the detection of aflatoxins and fumonisins in corn and grain. The Afla-V AQUA and Fumo-V AQUA provide quantitative results in only five-minutes (after extraction/ sample prep). The simple, one-step, water-based process eliminates solvent use completely. Extraction is performed using a simple, environmentally safe solution which requires no special handling, mixing or blending.
Traditional testing methods often require individual extraction procedures for each toxin, some requiring the use of costly chemicals such as methanol, a chemical solvent which requires special storage and handling. In addition, specialised shipping often adds to the expense and complexity of on-site mycotoxin detection. In contrast, the Afla-V AQUA and Fumo–V AQUA tests can be run on the same sample extract, reducing time, effort and consumables cost.
