Portland, Maine (August 3, 2012)--EnviroLogix Inc. is proud to announce that its QuickTox Kit for QuickScan™ - Aflatoxin (Cat. No. AQ 109 BG) has received AOAC certification under the Performance Tested MethodsSM Validated Methods program (Certificate No. 041201).
It is the only lateral flow device (LFD) certified to detect and quantify Aflatoxin in corn grain under this program.
The simplicity of LFD testing combined with QuickScan's long-standing reputation for accuracy and traceability means that grain-quality decisions can be made quickly with complete confidence in the results.
"Our customers can now be even more confident in the performance of our QuickScan and QuickTox products," said Simon Varney, Global Marketing Manager. "We are pleased to add AOAC certification to the ever-growing list of certifications of our testing system".
EnviroLogix was the first company to offer LFD technology for mycotoxin screening in grain. The focus on innovation and providing solutions in today's identity-preservation and food-safety environments continued with the introduction of QuickScan, offering the unique advantage of quantifying mycotoxins and GMOs in one PC-based testing system.
“Compared to other testing technology for mycotoxins and GMOs, we believe QuickScan offers extremely compelling features for a variety of industries, including grain, feed, milling and pet food,” Varney said. “In addition to our technology, we are committed to strong technical support, working hard to resolve protocol issues and to address customer concerns. Having this globally-recognized AOAC validation helps our customers use the QuickScan system for a wider variety of finish applications.”
