Grain and Feed Mycotoxin Testing Solutions

The average yearly incidence of mycotoxins in grain and feed above regulatory limits approaches 25%. Climate change is also adding to the uncertainty of mycotoxin growth. Testing and mitigation are more important than ever. Whether you need rapid screening, high throughput, ultimate verification and quantification, or any combination thereof, PerkinElmer has the right combination of methods and technologies to meet your needs. We can help all points along the grain chain to detect mycotoxins with the suitable technology for the user capabilities, throughput, and accuracy. Our solutions help improve efficiency, capabilities, mitigate risk, and ultimately help you in your quest to provide safe grain-based products. We can even help expand your business and implement ISO accredited methods.

Confirmation

Fast and accurate analysis of selected mycotoxins.

  • LC 300 system is designed for very low dispersion, increasing separation efficiency, and lowering detection limits
  • LC 300 Pump family utilizes an advanced implementation of a rugged linear drive to deliver ultra-precise gradient flows up to 10,000 psi (HPLC configuration) or 18,000 psi (UHPLC configuration).
  • Patented real-time blending compensation automatically accounts for solvent compressibility changes under pressure
  • LC 300 Autosamplers ensure precision, outstanding reproducibility and low carryover for superior analytical performance.
  • LC 300 Fluorescence detector enables the selective detection of fluorescing compounds, with sensitivity that can be up to 1,000 times greater than UV detection, which is critical in mycotoxins analysis.
