Ochratoxin A is a mycotoxin produced by the fungus Aspergillus ochraceous and also by several species of Penicillium. Ochratoxin A is known to cause kidney damage in animals and is also a probable carcinogen based on animal studies. Using monoclonal antibody-based affinity chromatography, OchraTest™ from VICAM is the trusted ochratoxin test that produces precise numerical results.

OchraTest is safe and simple. It can be performed in less than 10 minutes and requires no special skills. Results may be recorded using a digital fluorometer readout or automatic printing devices. OchraTest is also ideal as the cleanup step for any HPLC analysis.

Designed for room temperature storage with an extended shelf-life, OchraTest outperforms other methods with superior ruggedness, accuracy and ease-of-use. With OchraTest, you get: sensitivity, simplicity, and speed—quick tests for parts per billion levels. In fact, no other test comes close for speed, quantification, and economy.

  • Convenient – For use with fluorometer or HPLC
  • Durable – Long shelf life; requires no refrigeration
  • Versatile – Can be used with a variety of samples
  • Quick – Less than 10 minutes to isolate toxin*
  • Wide Range – Detects levels as low as 0.10 ppb and as high as 100 ppb
  • Easy – No special skills required, test can be performed virtually anywhere
  • Safe – Requires less toxic materials than other methods
