Mycotoxins are toxic metabolites whose effects can be acutely and chronically toxic, dangerous and harmful, to humans and animals even in small amounts. VICAM’s test systems provide fast, simple and safe information on whether the goods can be safely processed further or not. With VICAM’s test systems you can obtain certainty in the laboratory as well as directly on site in the port or at the edge of the field after harvesting. All requirements of the EU regarding strictest guideline values and nutritional and feed-relevant laws are fulfilled by VICAM. Thus VICAM stands for highest quality and greatest safety.
Overview VICAM Testsystems
VICAM’s test systems provide fast, simple and reliable information as to whether the goods can be safely processed further or not. Certainty is just as essential in the laboratory as it is directly on site, when containers are delivered to the port or at the edge of the field after harvesting. Maximum safety and highest quality at every location.
Übersicht VICAM Testsysteme
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.
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.
- 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
Vertu™ TOUCH Basic Equipment
Myco 5-in-1 PLUS Test-Kit for Vertu™ TOUCH
Fast, safe and reliable for the quantitative detection of mycotoxins in food and feed when used directly on site or in the laboratory. Fluorometer tests provide accurate numerical results with easy handling of the test procedure. The Series-4EX Fluorometer provides ppt results within 10 minutes. No costly equipment or special training on the instrument is necessary.
The new, solvent-free, water-based strip tests allow risk and cost reduction while improving effectiveness. The tests are easy to perform directly on site or in the laboratory, and no special training is required. The new test strips are available for: Afla-V AQUA, DON-V, Fumo-V AQUA and Ochra-V AQUA.

HPLC und LC-MS/MS
Optimal purification and precise, traceable results are at the heart of our HPLC line. VICAM’s Wide Bore columns provide fast results, due to the faster flow rate, which meet the high demand for productivity and safety. With VICAM’s test columns ppb levels of different mycotoxins can be detected simultaneously and in one run.
