The Charm ROSA SLAFM test enables dairies and food manufacturers to detect Aflatoxin M1 visually at 350 ppt in raw, commingled cow milk. This qualitative test provides a cost-effective method for customers who wish to screen on the farm or cooling station, where they might not have a reader, or for milk receiving where a fast screening test is needed. This 3-minute Rapid One Step Assay is a lateral flow test that can be run using the Charm EZ system or ROSA Pearl-X Reader. This is the same equipment used for antibiotic testing in milk.
Lower operating costs and improve transportation efficiency by clearing good milk quickly with the Charm ROSA (Rapid One Step Assay) lateral flow strips which detect aflatoxin M1 and the most common antibiotics used to treat dairy cows. ROSA tests use patented technology to target drug sensitivities to safe and regulated levels, which prevents unnecessary rejection of milk caused by overly sensitive screening tests. The tests are easy to perform and are manufactured to test for US Safe Levels, EU MRL/ CODEX/ Customs Union maximum residue limits and multiple other country-specific requirements. Charm ROSA tests have been granted approval by regulatory authorities around the world.
Test results from ROSA strips may be read and officially recorded using the Charm EZ system, or the ROSA Pearl-X Reader, or may be interpreted visually in an unofficial capacity, making it ideal for farm use.
- Positive/negative visual result at 350 ppt
- Qualitative results in 3 minutes
- Uses same 56oC incubator equipment as other ROSA milk tests
- Results can be read on the Charm EZ system
- Detects aflatoxin M1 at or below US safe level. The SLAFM test has not been evaluated by the National Conference on Interstate Milk Shipments (NCIMS).
