RomerLabs® obtains AOAC-RI approval for the AgraStrip® Gluten G12 kit





The AOAC® Performance Tested MethodSM (PTM) Program evaluated the AgraStrip Gluten G12 method and found that the method performed to its specifications.

In the AOAC® Performance Tested MethodSM program Romer LabsAgraStrip Gluten G12 Test Kit was compared to the AOAC OMA reference method 2012.01 “Gliadin as a Measure of Gluten in Foods Containing Wheat, Rye and Barley”. Certification (PTM Certification #061403) was granted by the Research Institute for the “selected matrices” claim for foods (bread, ice cream, cookies, dark chocolate and rice flour) as well as for the “individual matrices” claim for environmental matrices (stainless steel).
The AgraStrip® Gluten G12 test kit incorporates the monoclonal G12 antibody, which was raised against the main immunotoxic fragment triggering celiac disease – the 33mer. Celiac patients must strictly avoid gluten in their diet and therefore need to rely on correct labelling of foods.

Memmert develops cooled vacuum oven

As the first manufacturer worldwide, Memmert has developed a cooled vacuum oven. Low temperature vacuum drying on a laboratory scale is applied among other things during the drying of bacteria and starter cultures or in the simulation of storage conditions during long distance flights.

The cooled vacuum oven VO 200cool with its interior volume of 29 litres has a temperature range of +5 °C to +90 °. For cooling purposes, a compact, energy-saving and extremely precise Peltier cooling unit was integrated. This way, the Memmert cooled vacuum oven achieves a surface temperature distribution over its entire temperature range with a deviation of max. +/-1 K.

Gentle low temperature vacuum drying and storage of micro-organisms or active pharmaceutical components is particularly applied in the food and pharmaceutical industry. Thanks to this process, unstable substances can be dried at moderate temperatures above zero without causing too much damage to the cell structure. Additionally, the cooled vacuum oven VOcool from Memmert can be deployed to easily and cost-effectively simulate storage and transport of pharmaceutical products during intercontinental flights.

Memmert climate chamber ICH with CO2 control

The climate chamber with CO2 and humidity control expands the Memmert portfolio by a multitude of new applications.

Thanks to a combination of temperature, humidity and digital CO2 control, the 256C model can also be universally applied for building material tests or for applications in the field of cell biology that require temperatures below room temperature.

The climate chamber covers a temperature range of -10 °C to +60 °C without humidity and from +10 °C to +60 °C with humidity. Active humidification and de-humidification can be set between 10 and 80% rh. The electronic CO2 control with automatic zero setting (NDIR measuring system) in the ICH 256C ensures an absolutely precise CO2 atmosphere from 0 to 20 % with an adjustment precision of 0.1 %. CO2 is introduced via a sterile filter.

The ICH series is completed by the climate chamber ICH 256 for stability tests of pharmaceuticals, as well as the ICH 256L with an illumination unit in accordance with ICH Q1B, option 2.
