Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by molds that can contaminate a wide range of crop plants and fruits. When contaminated, these crops become toxic to humans and animals, making them a major health issue.
To ensure food and feed safety, more than 100 countries have established regulations for mycotoxins in food and feed. Therefore, reliable testing solutions as part of an efficient mycotoxin risk management program are essential.
With over 40 years of experience in this field, Romer Labs offers the most comprehensive portfolio of mycotoxin testing solutions, which includes:
- Test kits for detecting regulated mycotoxins in agricultural commodities, grain by-products, and feed formulations.
- The broadest range of mycotoxin reference materials currently available on the market.
- Columns for one-step and immunoaffinity cleanup.
- Analytical services in our four ISO 17025-accredited laboratories located in the United States, Austria, Singapore, and China.
The latest data shows that the majority of the world's soybeans - between 80% and 90% - is produced using genetically modified (GM) soy. In the case of maize, approximately 30% is genetically modified. As worldwide cultivation of GM plants continues to expand, and import and labeling regulations become more intricate, accurate and effective GMO screening becomes increasingly necessary.
Romer Labs offers a comprehensive range of immunoassays for quick and easy GMO detection. Our extensive portfolio includes over 60 test kits that detect the most relevant traits in crops such as corn, soybean, canola, cotton, sugarbeet, alfalfa, and rice. Our tests are designed to meet your needs, no matter the crop or the combination of traits you need to detect.
Food safety relies heavily on the hygienic conditions in food manufacturing facilities. The presence of high levels of non-pathogenic bacteria can affect the shelf life and quality of foodstuffs for consumers. Equally important is the absence of pathogens in food that could potentially cause illness. Food manufacturers must be diligent in keeping their processing environment clean and free of debris to prevent the cross-contamination of the final product.
