Detect EU Criteria Concentrations of Mycotoxins with High Sensitivity

Aflatoxins Detectable Directly without Fluorescent Derivatization

By using the i-Series Plus built-in PDA detector with an RF-20Axs fluorescence detector, which offers the highest sensitivity levels in the world, the system can detect aflatoxins at concentration levels specified as criteria values*1 in EU directives, without using fluorescent derivatization. The instruction manual provided with the system includes pretreatment methods optimized for target samples, which are grains (soft wheat and rice flours), milk, and apples. The troubleshooting section includes key considerations for each process step, from extraction to acquisition, which helps ensure that reliable data can be acquired even when analyzing samples for the first time.

Screening Results and Reports are Available Immediately After Analysis is Finished

Quickly Confirm Screening Results in the Data Browser Window

Multiple chromatograms and automatically calculated quantitative results can be conrmed in the same window by simply dragging acquired data to the  Data Browser. Pass/fail results for criteria values can also be displayed at the same time, making it easy to understand test results at a glance.

Determine Pass/Fail Results Quickly for Large Amounts of Data and Perform More Complicated Statistical Analysis

Measurement results for each sample can be automatically included in individual quantitative reports prepared for each sample or in a summary report or output in PDF format. Using the optional multi-data report function*2 can significantly improve visualizing massive amounts of sample data. Pass/fail results for multiple samples can be output in a table, so that samples that fail the criteria can be identified at a glance, even for large numbers of samples. In addition, a series of quantitative results can be automatically output as an Excel file, so that the data can be graphed or used for more sophisticated statistical processing, which offers powerful support for medium and long-term data management.
