QuickTox™ Kit for Aflatoxin - 20 ppb - AS 101
The first lateral flow test for aflatoxin to be certified by GIPSA just got better!
QuickTox™ for Aflatoxin offers a fast, reliable and easy method for screening corn for this toxin at the 20 ppb level. The test gives an accurate “yes/no” result within 2-5 minutes, providing convenience where simplicity and speed are vital for segregating grain.
There are three easy steps, results are read visually, and no filtering or costly equipment is necessary. Many facilities are concerned about the safety and disposal of methanol, so we’ve also validated the extraction for corn with ethanol as well!
Aflatoxin is considered to be the most potent, naturally-occurring carcinogen known to affect both humans and animals.
