AgraQuant® ELISA Tests The Romer Labs AgraQuant® product family is a range of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) test kits that encompasses mycotoxin, allergen, GMO and drug residue tests. ELISA tests are available in a qualitative or quantitative format. While qualitative ELISA tests can be read visually, quantitative tests are analyzed by a specific ELISA reader, such as the StatFax® and the ChroMate® ELISA reader, for quantification purposes. A set of four to six standards used for calibration is supplied with all test kits to determine a result. The results obtained are comparable to HPLC results. AgraQuant® kits are direct competitive ELISAs for mycotoxin and drug residue tests and sandwich ELISAs for allergen and GMO tests. All AgraQuant® ELISAs use specific antibody coated microwells and an enzyme-labeled analyte conjugate. The quality of the antibody is crucial for test-result quality. Romer Labs has a broad range of monoclonal antibodies, which are highly specific to the respective analyte and guarantee robust and accurate results.

RapidChek® Pathogen Detection As a food processor, choosing the best pathogen detection method can be a very difficult decision. The method should have a meaningful impact on the total cost of a food safety program but most importantly, provide maximum assurance of reliability in the test results. Romer Labs RapidChek® and RapidChek® SELECT™ product lines were developed to deliver the simplicity, speed and high accuracy necessary every day. The RapidChek® product family utilizes highly selective enrichment media coupled to advanced lateral flow immunochemical detection of food pathogens such as Salmonella spp., Listeria spp., and Escherichia coli O157 in various foodstuffs and environmental applications. Patented phage technology used in the SELECT™ system suppresses the growth of competitive microflora which creates optimal growth conditions for Salmonella spp. Highly specific monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies are exclusive to the RapidChek® system which works without the need for expensive equipment or extensive training.

AgraStrip® Lateral Flow Devices The Romer Labs AgraStrip® product family utilizes lateral flow technology (LFD), also known as immunochromatography tests. LFDs are ready-to-use products for on-site testing that come in a strip test format. AgraStrip® LFDs use specific antibodies labeled with colloidal gold for visual color development at a test and control zone. LFDs are available in a qualitative or quantitative format. While qualitative LFDs can be read visually, quantitative tests are used with the Romer Labs AgraVision™ reader, providing quantitative results.

HygieneChek™ Hygiene Monitoring The Romer Labs HygieneChek™ is an easy to use, reliable and economic microbiological testing system. It is based on a double-sided agar paddle which is used to detect and identify various microorganisms commonly found in foods, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Microbiological samples can be taken from liquids and surfaces directly in the processing environment (including production lines), kitchens, cafeterias, supermarkets, military areas and clean rooms. It can also be used for air sampling. The only equipment required for the HygieneChek™ is an incubator and optionally a bench top autoclave.

FluoroQuant® Fluorometric Test The FluoroQuant® Test kits are the fastest, quantitative fluorometric tests based on a solid-phase or immunoaffinity column cleanup. They are USDA/GIPSA approved and AOAC Performance Tested. These tests provide a wide quantitation range without dilution steps. The FluoroQuant® tests are simple enough for field use in grain, feed and food handling facilities, but they are also appropriate for analytical laboratories. The FluoroQuant® Test kits require a FQ-Reader, which reads the fluorescence signal of the test and translates it into a quantitative analytical result. The FQ-Reader comes with a touch screen and can be connected to a PC and a printer.

MycoSep® and MultiSep® Cleanup Columns In order to shorten the sample cleanup process, Romer Labs has developed a product portfolio of one-step cleanup columns for different groups of mycotoxins. MycoSep® and MultiSep® columns contain packing materials made of adsorbent mixes designed for all relevant food and feed commodities allowing cleanup within 30 seconds. The interferences adhere to the chemical packing in the column and the purified extract, containing the analytes of interest, passes through the column.

MycoSpin™ Multi-Mycotoxin Cleanup Columns Romer Labs has developed a spin column that can be used for all regulated mycotoxins to shorten the time-consuming cleanup process for the simultaneous analysis of multiple mycotoxins. The MycoSpin™ 400 Multitoxin spin column contains a combination of adsorbents that was designed


for the purification of complex commodity extracts for subsequent LC-MS/MS multi-mycotoxin analysis. This cleanup column has been studied intensively and application briefs are available.

StarLine™ Immunoaffinity Columns Romer Labs wide range of immunoaffinity columns (IAC) for regulated mycotoxins is based on a specific antibody-analyte binding technology. StarLine™ immunoaffinity columns are designed for simple and reliable cleanups before analyzing in a broad range of foodstuffs and animal feed for mycotoxin contaminations. Immunoaffinity columns contain a gel bed with toxin-specific antibodies coupled to the gel particles. These antibodies will capture mycotoxins in a sample and release them again after a washing stage. StarLine™ immunoaffinity columns have been validated in an extensive testing program and can be used for the purification and concentration of mycotoxins prior to the analysis by various techniques, such as HPLC, LC-MS, GC-MS, ELISA or direct fluorometry. All Romer Labs IAC employ highly specific monoclonal antibodies.

Biopure™ Calibrants Biopure™ is a Romer Labs brand representing reference materials. Biopure™ calibrants are high quality products characterized by the appropriate independent methods, such as HPLC, NMR and MS. The selection of the right method is crucial for ensuring the identity and purity of the reference materials. Biopure™ calibrants are accompanied by a certificate. The certificate states the uncertainty of the target analyte and documents the traceability of the certified value, expressed in SI conform units. The certificate of analysis is supplied in accordance to ISO Guide 31.

Biopure™ has the broadest range of mycotoxin reference materials currently available globally. In addition calibrants for veterinary drug residues and other contaminants are supplied. The stars of this product line are the fully labeled C13 internal standards for analyses using mass spectometry as detection, which are unique and rely on a patented technology, proprietary to Romer Labs.

Biopure™ Matrix Reference Materials Romer Labs offers a range of quality control materials (QCM) for most of the regulated mycotoxins in different contamination levels and matrices. These materials represent naturally contaminated materials with a Romer Labs in-house characterization by an ISO 17025 accredited LC-MS/MS method. Additionally Romer Labs offers positive control samples for food allergens. All products come with a certificate of analysis.

Analytical Service Romer Labs currently operates service laboratories in four countries: Austria, Singapore, the United Kingdom and the United States. All these laboratories are accredited according to ISO 17025 and offer a broad range of services for allergens, mycotoxins, GMOs and veterinary drug residues. The Romer Labs service laboratories employ cutting edge technology and are equipped with the latest generation of equipment.

Laboratory Equipment Romer Labs aims to provide full setup packages for its diagnostic solutions. Using the right equipment is essential to apply a method correctly. Romer Labs provides a series of readers for its rapid test kits, such as the AgraVision™ (for Lateral Flow Tests) or the ChroMate® (for ELISA tests). For instrumental analysis, Romer Labs has different instruments available that help improve method performance, such as the RDU (Romer® Derivatization Unit) used for Aflatoxins analysis in HPLC-FLD. Romer® laboratory mills have set the standard in sample preparation in mycotoxin analysis for over 25 years and are referenced in numerous official methods (AOAC, USDA, FAO, etc.) and scientific publications. Many multinational food and feed companies use Romer® mills in their daily routine and the products are known for their reliability and robustness.

EnzymeFast® EnzymeFast® tests are enzymatic tests in a microtiter plate format. Enzymatic food analysis is a basic method used for the measurement of compounds such as sugars, acids, alcohols and other metabolites in foods and beverages. In general, enzymes are proteins that catalyze the conversion of one molecule into another. Certain enzymatic reactions lead to color formation or consumption that often takes place in a wavelength range invisible to the human eye. This change in intensity can be measured. The high specificity of enzyme reactions allows for the analysis of food components in complex matrices.

Food allergy, an immune response to proteins present in food that the body mistakenly believes are harmful, is an important health problem of increasing concern in developed countries. Allergens are the largest single cause of global product recalls. A major concern of food manufacturers is the potential risk for cross contamination with food allergens during production processes. The aim of any food manufacturerâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;s Food Allergen Management Program is to minimize this risk. An important tool in any allergen management plan is testing for the presence or, better still, absence of allergens. Romer Labs provides an extensive range of allergen test kits for laboratory-based, as well as on-site testing along with a broad portfolio of analytical service analyses.

The G12™ antibody represents the next generation of gluten testing as it targets toxic peptides

that trigger auto-immune reactions in people suffering from celiac disease. It is a monoclonal antibody that was raised against the toxic fragment called 33-mer of the gliadin protein present in gluten. Results obtained from immunochemical test systems based on the G12™ antibody should be considered to be closer to the ideal of a food safety test as they establish the important link between celiac disease and detection of the immunotoxic peptides.

Foodborne illness is a serious public health concern around the world. Foods can become contaminated with pathogenic bacteria through exposure to animal manure, inadequate processing controls, cross-contamination, and improper storage or cooking. With the globalization of the food supply it is imperative that food producers test their products for pathogens due to numerous regulatory requirements. Production delays and plant shut-downs, food spoilage, brand protection, and product recalls cost money as well as a companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation. Therefore, cost-effective, easy-to-use, and accurate testing methods are necessary to ensure safe food is being supplied to the consumer.

Pathogens + Microbiology


Plants of vital importance to agriculture are often genetically modified by the insertion of foreign DNA material into their DNA sequence, resulting in expressed novel traits, typically herbicide tolerance or insect resistance. Current GMO production basically centers on four main crops: soybeans, corn, cotton and oilseed rape. On a global level, GMO crops are cultivated on substantial areas of arable land. When testing for GMOs, detection is achieved either through the inserted DNA or expressed protein translated from the novel DNA. The inserted DNA and its corresponding protein are found in the cells of the plant. Thus, the seeds and/or plant tissue material (e.g. leaves) can be used for GMO testing. Romer Labs offers both a wide range of rapid tests based on LFD and ELISA technologies and an extensive range of analytical service analyses covering the majority of registered GMO traits found on the market.

Residues in food and feed are a very heterogeneous group of substances ranging from process contaminants to pesticides, veterinary drugs or even substances added illegally, such as melamine. Furthermore, the inadvertent contamination of meat and bone meal (MBM) with infected animal tissue and the subsequent use of this material as a feed supplement contributes to the spread of disease. As a result, the use of processed animal proteins (PAPs) in animal feeds is regulated in many countries around the world. Also, levels of sugars are crucial for consumers suffering from intolerances and the presence of certain metabolites indicates a lack of hygiene during production. By using enzymatic methods it is also possible to detect whether food has been tampered. Romer Labs offers ELISA-based test kits, standards and reference materials for residues, rapid, cost-effective immunochromatographic strip tests for meat and bone meal and a growing list of enzymatic test kits for rapid and reliable sugar analysis in a microtitre plate format.

When performing an analytical test, strong focus has to be put on the equipment used to obtain accurate and reproducible test results. Romer Labs offers a range of equipment for analytical purposes, including Romer Mills for grinding and sample division and the Romer Evap® System for the rapid concentration of sample extracts. Furthermore, quantitative and/or semi quantitative analyses often require additional equipment for result interpretation. The AgraVision™ reader supports lateral flow test interpretation whereas StatFax® or ChroMate® are used for ELISA quantification purposes. Last but not least, aflatoxin analysis by HPLC-FLD requires derivatization of the analytes for higher sensitivity, a task made possible by Romer Labs photochemical or electrochemical derivatization units.

TLC Autospotter®, 115V TLC Autospotter®, 230V

The Romer Labs TLC AutoSpotter™ reduces the time traditionally associated with TLC applications. It allows accurate dispensing of contents of a 100-µL syringe within 3 minutes and assures tight uniform spots for accurate test results. The AutoSpotter is equipped with eighteen channels for maximum testing capabilities. Special features and calibrated controls provide accurate reproducible results every time.

RDU™ EQOLE1480

Romer® Derivatization Unit

The Romer® Derivatization Unit (RDU™) is a photochemical post-column derivatization for the determination of aflatoxins by HPLC-FLD. For sensitive determination of aflatoxins, the aflatoxins B1 and G1 must be derivatized in order to enhance their natural fluorescence. This may be done with ease photochemically by irradiation with UV light at 254 nm with the RDU™. The method performance is equivalent to an electrochemical derivatization (e.g. Kobra Cell) as shown in the literature. Addtionally, by using the RDU™ there is no necessity for additional purging and lifetime of the HPLC system is increased due to the fact the RDU™ doesn’t require any aggressive reagents to be added to the mobile phase, as this is the case for electrochemical methods.
