• The new Shimadzu i-Series food safety analysers provide fast, high-sensitivity tests for controlled components such as mold toxins (mycotoxins) and synthetic antimicrobials. Rapid screening is available for 10 mycotoxins in e.g. wheat flour, rice flour and other grains, , as well as 24 synthetic antimicrobials in various meat samples.

Safer food with two new special HPLC analysers

Feb 06 2017 Read 1003 Times

Shimadzu, one of the world leaders in analytical instrumentation, has released two i-Series HPLC analysers for food safety requirements: a mycotoxin screening system and a synthetic antimicrobial screening system. These new i-Series food safety analysers support the need for fast, high-sensitivity examinations for controlled components such as mold toxins (mycotoxins) and synthetic antimicrobials (sulfa-based and quinolone-based agents) included in the raw materials for food products. Results can be checked quickly with the LabSolutions analysis software.

Background to the development

Measurement methods for mold toxins, synthetic antimicrobials and other controlled components are prescribed in the official regulations of each country in the world. Exported food must be tested carefully for the presence of controlled components according to the regulations of the destination country. Multiple cycles of analysis must be performed for each sample.
In consideration of this need, Shimadzu has released the i-Series food safety analysers, which are based on the i-Series of integrated high performance liquid chromatographs (HPLC). The i-Series food safety analysers can rapidly process large numbers of food samples by performing screening analyses of up to 10 mycotoxins or 24 synthetic antimicrobials, including components that are currently controlled or may be regulated in the future.


  1. High-sensitivity detection of mycotoxins at maximum residue levels as regulated by the European Commission
  2. High-sensitivity detection of synthetic antimicrobials at maximum residue levels as regulated by the European Commission
  3. Special kits with analytical conditions and columns
  4. Screening results can be checked at a glance.
