Charm’s ROSA portfolio includes tests for the detection of many drugs commonly used in livestock production, as well as for aflatoxin M1. Charm ROSA strips are manufactured to test for US tolerance levels, EU MRL/CODEX, Canadian MRLs, multiple other country-specific requirements, and have been granted approval by regulatory authorities around the world.
Speed, ease of use, and minimal equipment requirements make ROSA tests incredibly versatile. Test results from ROSA strips are read and officially recorded using the Charm EZ system or Charm EZ Lite system, or they can be interpreted visually in an unofficial capacity, making them ideal for farm use.
