Sensor Development Corporation designs, develops and manufactures high sensitivity devices for detecting the mold that produces aflatoxin. This device can be installed in a bin and provides a real-time monitoring for early recognition of molds allowing action to be taken to prevent the spread of the mold. The detector is low cost and does not need skilled personnel to operate. Its use does not require a physical sampling, which can lead to as much as 90% of the error associated with other test methods. The same technology platform could be used to detect other mycotoxins such as DON and insects.
