Austin, TX, May 11, 2016 --( Bioo Scientific recently announced the launch of the MycoFlow™ Total Aflatoxin Strip Test Kit for the rapid detection of total aflatoxin in corn, corn grits, corn meal, rice, wheat, soy, peanut, pistachio, and coconut. With a detection limit of 20 ppb for total aflatoxin (B1, B2, G1 and G2) residues and a fast 5 minute protocol, this kit is ideal for use in the field or the reference laboratory.

The MycoFlow Total Aflatoxin Strip Test Kit’s relative cross-reactivity with various aflatoxins includes: B1 at 100%, B2 at 95%, G1 at 91%, and G2 at 72%. The limit of detection for total aflatoxin in this kit is 16-20 ppb. Samples containing less than 16 ppb aflatoxin will present an observable test line. Interpretation of results can be performed visually or using the QuickSTAR™ Strip Reader.
