Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites of molds that contaminate a vast range of crops and fruits. This contamination poses a significant health risk to both humans and animals due to the inherent toxicity of these compounds. As a result, ensuring food and feed safety is of paramount importance.

To tackle this issue, over 100 countries have established regulations that govern the presence of mycotoxins in food and feed. In response to these regulations, there is a growing demand for reliable and efficient mycotoxin testing solutions that not only ensure compliance but also enable effective mycotoxin risk management.

With over 40 years of experience in mycotoxin detection, Romer Labs is a leader in the field, offering an extensive portfolio of comprehensive testing solutions.

Mycotoxin Reference Materials for Accurate and Reliable Analysis Results

The Biopure™ product line provides mycotoxin reference materials in both crystalline and liquid forms. These calibrants are thoroughly characterized by reliable independent methods, such as HPLC, NMR, and LC-MS/MS, ensuring their identity and purity.

In compliance with ISO Guide 31, each mycotoxin reference material includes a certificate that indicates the uncertainty of the target analyte and documents the traceability of the certified value. Customized calibrants can also be offered upon request.

Take a comprehensive look at our offerings by exploring the complete overview provided below.

Biopure™ 13C Isotope-Labelled Internal Standards

Biopure™ 13C-labeled mycotoxins are used as internal standards in analytical methods such as liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) for the accurate quantification of mycotoxins in various samples. The 13C label provides a unique mass signature that allows the labeled compound to be distinguished from the naturally occurring, unlabeled mycotoxin during analysis.

By using Biopure™ 13C-labeled mycotoxin reference materials, analysts can correct for matrix effects and sample preparation recovery losses, improving the accuracy and reliability of their results.

Biopure™ ISO 17034 Certified Reference Materials

The Biopure™ ISO 17034 Certified Reference Materials are top-quality calibrants that meet the stringent criteria required by ISO 17025-accredited laboratories. Manufactured under ISO 17034 accreditation, these reference materials are characterized by their metrological traceability, homogeneity data, long- and short-term stability data, and a certified value with uncertainty.

Compliant with all pertinent ISO 17025 standards, Biopure™ ISO 17034-certified reference materials are accompanied by a certificate of analysis (CoA) in line with the ISO 17034 standard.

Biopure™ Calibrants

Biopure™ mycotoxin calibrants are high-quality, well-characterized reference materials utilized for the accurate and reliable quantification of mycotoxins in various samples. These reference materials are designed to support analytical methods, ensuring the validity and consistency of results in mycotoxin testing.

Characterized by independent methods, Biopure™ calibrants come with a certificate of analysis created in accordance with ISO Guide 31 and Eurachem guidelines.

Biopure™ calibrants are available in liquid “ready-to-use” and crystalline forms, and as single calibrants as well as calibrant mixtures. Customized calibrants are available upon request.

Quality control materials (QCM)

Romer Labs Quality Control Materials (QCM) consist of naturally contaminated materials with a variety of matrices and contamination levels. These materials undergo rigorous in-house characterization using an ISO 17025 accredited LC-MS/MS method, ensuring accuracy and consistency.

QCMs are available for regulated mycotoxins such as aflatoxin, deoxynivalenol, fumonisin, and zearalenone, as well as multitoxin materials. Certificates of analysis are provided for each batch, enabling users to confidently employ Romer Labs QCMs for method validation, periodic accuracy checks of accredited analytical methods, and as positive control materials in various assays.
