AgraStrip® Pro WATEX® Mycotoxin Testing Portfolio Complete with Addition of Kit for T-2/HT-2 Toxins

September 19, 2022 – Romer Labs, a leading provider of diagnostic solutions for the agricultural, food and feed industries, is announcing the launch of the AgraStrip® Pro T-2/HT-2 WATEX® rapid test kit. With this new lateral flow device, the AgraStrip® Pro WATEX® system is now capable of providing the precise and swift quantification of the six most commonly regulated mycotoxins in a user-friendly format.

Metabolites of several different species of Fusarium mold, T-2 toxin and its deacetylated form, HT-2 toxin, have detrimental effects on the health of both humans and livestock, including growth retardation, necrosis, and disease of the bone marrow and the liver. Further ailments include a depressed leukocyte count and disease of the digestive and nervous systems.

With a limit of detection of 15 ppb, the AgraStrip® Pro T-2/HT-2 WATEX® test kit is one of the most sensitive rapid solutions on the market. Paired with the AgraVision Pro reader, the system allows for the independent and simultaneous testing of up to four samples in an intuitive, walk-away procedure, while the Romer Labs Data Manager automatically collects test results, enabling further analysis, storage, and transfer to a LIMS.

Kurt Brunner, Managing Director: “With the AgraStrip® Pro WATEX® system, we set out to reconceptualize the on-site testing for mycotoxins in terms of speed, convenience and the elimination of handling errors. Now, with the advent of our AgraStrip® Pro T-2/HT-2 WATEX® test kit, our innovative approach extends to all of the six most commonly regulated mycotoxins, including total aflatoxin, deoxynivalenol, total fumonisin, zearalenone, and ochratoxin.”
