Mycotoxin Reference Materials for Accurate and Reliable Analysis Results

Romer Labs offers the broadest range of mycotoxin reference materials currently available globally under the brand name Biopure. High quality calibrants are a must for accurate and reliable results in any analysis.

Biopure™ calibrants

Biopure™ calibrants are high quality mycotoxin reference materials characterized by appropriate independent methods, like HPLC, NMR and LC-MS/MS. This ensures the identity and purity of the reference materials.

Mycotoxin reference materials are accompanied by certificates, created in accordance to ISO Guide 31. This includes stating the uncertainty of the target analyte and documenting the traceability of the certified value.

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.

Romer Labs offers reference materials produced according to ISO Guide 34. Certified reference materials are defined as a reference material characterized by metrological traceability, a certified value and an uncertainty budget. They comply with all requirements of ISO 17025, GLP, etc. and come with a complete documentation. PRMs are intended for use where high quality and traceability is important for fulfilling accreditation needs. More information and differences between PRMs and reference materials at Romer Labs can be found here.

The stars of the Biopure™ product line are the fully labeled 13C internal standards for mass spectrometry analysis. These unique calibrants are available for all regulated mycotoxins and rely on a patented technology, proprietary to Romer Labs.

Biopure™ quality control materials

Quality control materials (QCM) are intended for method validation purposes and for the control of the performance of an analytical method.

Romer Labs offers a range of QCM for most of the regulated mycotoxins in different contamination levels and matrices. Readily available are QCM for Deoxynivalenol, Fumonisins, Ochratoxin A and Zearalenone as well as multitoxin and blank materials.

These materials represent naturally contaminated materials with a Romer Labs in-house characterization using an ISO 17025 accredited LC-MS/MS method. Certificates of analysis are provided with each batch.

Additional Equipment

Romer Labs also offers additional equipment. For some analyzes (eg. aflatoxins) by HPLC-FLD, a derivatization of the analytes is necessary. Romer Labs provides equipment like the Romer Derivatization Unit (RDU, photochemical) and the Romer Cell (electrochemical) for post-column derivatization.

Romer Labs Evap System can be used for rapid evaporation of common organic solvents.

Complaint Management

There is a well-established and documented procedure for handling complaints and work that do not conform to the applicable norm within Romer Labs. A database is used to document all complaints (deriving both from internal and external sources). There, the responsibilities for root cause analyses and corrective or preventive measures are also defined and the communication process to the customer is clearly established. Among other things, the complaint procedure – in the context of our program for addressing risks and opportunities – serves as a starting point for the continual improvement of our products, processes and service.
