Automation Food Safety Mycotoxin testing PerkinElmer

PerkinElmer launches a new MaxSignal Mycotoxin Automation Bundle. Using the new assays and the automation feature of this bundle, food safety QA managers and lab teams at grain processors, feed mills, pet food companies and contract labs can process up to 180 samples in less than 90 minutes.

The new bundle comprises four kits: MaxSignal HTS Zearalenone ELISA Kit, MaxSignal HTS Fumonisin ELISA Kit, MaxSignal HTS Ochratoxin A ELISA Kit and MaxSignal HTS T2/HT2 ELISA Kit. The bundle joins the Deoxynivalenol (DON) and Total Aflatoxin automation kits released by the company last year.

PerkinElmer’s portfolio covers both phases of mycotoxin testing: screening and confirmation. This offering includes complete workflows from screening to analytical confirmation, integration software and application support to develop new methods and improve existing method performance.

“Mycotoxin testing has always been a critical facet of the workflow for high volume food processors and has traditionally required significant investments in time and labour,” said Greg Sears, vice-president and general manager, food segment and organic mass spectrometry. “With our new MaxSignal Mycotoxin Automation Bundle, we are combining better and faster solutions with lower total cost per sample for intricate food matrices. This innovation creates faster times to result, absorbing spikes in regional demand and helping customers realize higher lab productivity.”
