ToxiMet will be exhibiting the latest in food safety testing equipment on ITL’s stand, at Medtec UK Stand 1307, NEC Birmingham 23-24 May 2012. This newly announced technology, ToxiQuant delivers highly accurate food testing in a fraction of the time possible with current systems on the market.

The ToxiQuant system can accurately, precisely, simply, rapidly and affordably measure the level of mycotoxins (responsible for 56% of all border rejections) in edible nuts at the regulatory level to ‘sub parts per billion’ accuracy. The results are shown in minutes rather than hours or even days and testing can take place outside laboratory conditions. It is highly suited for testing across the four major agricultural commodity groups – nuts, cereals, dried fruits and coffee beans.

For ease of use by non-scientists, the ToxiMet system eradicates the need for batch testing and allows a flexibility and cost-efficiency never seen before in the toxin testing market.

Dr. Siro Perez, CEO of ToxiMet says, “The ToxiMet system is a disruptive, IP protected technology and is capable of simultaneously measuring multiple toxins in one test. It offers users a highly significant step forward in the measurement and identification of mycotoxins and this new ability to provide real-time, regular testing of the food quality, every time it is to be transported, brings potentially huge commercial and operational benefits to the whole supply chain.”

Integrated Technologies Limited (ITL), the UK-based instrumentation design consultancy and manufacturer, is ToxiMet’s engineering partner.

Established in the UK for over 35 years, ITL has built a solid reputation as the market leader in the design and manufacture of medical diagnostic and analytical instruments. It supports customers throughout every stage of the concept, design, development, prototyping and manufacturing cycle – bringing Instruments to life.
