Romer Labs Receives FGIS Approval for AgraStrip® Pro WATEX® Rapid Test for Detection of Zearalenone

APRIL 21, 2022 – Romer Labs, a leading provider of diagnostic solutions for the agricultural, food and feed industries, has received approval from the Federal Grain Inspection Service (FGIS) for its AgraStrip® Pro Zearalenone WATEX® rapid test kit.

According to the Certificate of Conformance (no. FGIS 2022-158), AgraStrip® Pro Zearalenone WATEX® was found to meet all test performance criteria as defined in relevant regulations. Approved commodities include dent or field corn, corn meal, and corn flour.

The AgraStrip® Pro WATEX® test system provides for the rapid and simple on-site quantification of mycotoxins in a variety of commodities. 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. Zearalenone is just one of five analytes currently covered by the AgraStrip® Pro WATEX® system: solutions for total aflatoxin, deoxynivalenol, total fumonisin and ochratoxin A are also available.

Kurt Brunner, Managing Director: “We are delighted that our AgraStrip® Pro Zearalenone WATEX® solution has received FGIS approval. It is a good indicator of the robustness and precision of the entire system, including our strip tests and the AgraVision™ Pro reader. We look forward to announcing FGIS approvals for our other mycotoxin rapid tests soon.”
