Vertu™ TOUCH Lateral Flow Reader

The new Vertu™ TOUCH lateral flow strip test reader works optimally with VICAM’s Vertu strip tests to provide quantitative results for up to six key mycotoxins, including aflatoxin, fumonisin, vomitoxin (DON), zearalenone, ochratoxin A and the combination of T-2 and HT-2 toxins.

The Vertu™ TOUCH reader offers simple touchscreen operation, on-board data storage and transfer, optional printing, and requires no special training or expertise for field, process, or laboratory testing environments.

Features:
Through an optical sensor that acquires measurement data along the test strip, data is converted to accurate results using a specific calibration curve of toxin concentrations. The Vertu™ TOUCH is therefore excellent for quick, easy and yet meaningful evaluation.

Advantages:

  • Intuitive touchscreen navigation
  • Internal memory for up to 99 method calibrations
  • Storage of up to 999 sample data points
  • Print, store and share data locally and across the enterprise
  • Vertu Connect software enables centralized data collection from multiple Vertu TOUCH devices on a central PC
