Mycotoxins in grains: On-site sampling & analysis

Sidebar Image

With rapidust®  Eurofins is offering the first on-site test system for mycotoxins, including both representative sampling of grain lots and rapid analysis, to provide broader risk protection across the grain industry regarding mycotoxin contaminations.

The patented rapidust® procedure detects mycotoxins in grains by means of innovative dust sampling and analysis. Based on the proven fact that the contamination of the overall grain lot and its dust particles can be correlated, Eurofins now offers its customers unique certainty on the mycotoxin contamination of large grain lots within minutes.


rapidust® is an all-round carefree package including everything you need for on-site sampling and analysis of mycotoxins in grains.

The product portfolio is complemented by a full range of sampling and analytical services.
