New Delhi: ImagoAI, a cutting-edge foodtech AI startup headquartered in Silicon Valley, has achieved prestigious Performance Tested MethodsSM (PTM) certification from the AOAC Research Institute for its groundbreaking rapid Galaxy for Mycotoxins Test in corn.
Mycotoxins are toxic compounds produced by certain fungi, posing risks to human and animal health. Certain mycotoxins have been linked to even carcinogenic effects. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimated that 25% of the crops worldwide are contaminated with mycotoxins.
Galaxy for Mycotoxins test by ImagoAI utilizes cutting-edge Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) and Artificial Intelligence(AI) to test mycotoxins. The Galaxy analyzes the hyperspectral image using an AI model and displays the quantitative results of mycotoxins in ppb or ppm within a few seconds. No chemicals or reagents are required to perform these tests. As the developer of the world’s first eco-friendly mycotoxin test to receive PTM certification, ImagoAI leads the way in sustainable food safety tests.
Hyperspectral Imaging Technology
Hyperspectral imaging is a sophisticated technique that captures and processes information from across the electromagnetic spectrum, far beyond the limited range visible to the human eye. Unlike traditional imaging methods that record only a few discrete spectral bands (like red, green, and blue), hyperspectral imaging acquires hundreds of contiguous spectral bands.
This is achieved by using specialized sensors that detect light intensity across a broad range of wavelengths. Each pixel in a hyperspectral image contains a spectrum, essentially a signature of how light is reflected or emitted by the material at that specific location across the spectrum.
By analyzing this wealth of spectral data with its proprietary deep-tech AI models, Galaxy by ImagoAI can extract valuable information about mycotoxins. This is because different materials interact with light in unique ways across the spectrum, leading to distinctive spectral signatures.
Benefits of ImagoAI’s Galaxy Mycotoxin Test:
  1. Unmatched Speed: ImagoAI boasts the world’s fastest mycotoxin test, delivering results in less than 30 seconds. This eliminates waiting times associatedwith traditional methods and enables real-time decision-making.
  2. NoHuman Bias: Streamlines food testing process and eliminates human error in chemical-based testing.
  3. Improved Cost Savings: Eliminates the high costs associated with traditional chemical-based tests.
  1. IncreasedFood Safety: Mitigates risk by testing more in a rapid and cost-efficient manner.
  2. SustainableTesting: ImagoAI’s eco-friendly approach to mycotoxin testing minimizes environmental impact by eliminating the need for chemical consumables.
  1. Plug& Play: Designed for ease of use, the Galaxy mycotoxin test requires minimal training and expertise, making it accessible to food producers of all sizes. Its intuitive interface ensures hassle-free operation every time.
  2. Run Multiple Tests Simultaneously: The Galaxy mycotoxin test allows for multiplemycotoxins to be tested simultaneously, further enhancing operational efficiency and throughput for food production facilities.
  3. Seamless Data Management: With results in digital format, the Galaxy mycotoxintest eliminates the need for manual documentation, reducing the risk of human error and streamlining data management processes.
As the pioneering Hyperspectral Imaging-powered mycotoxin test to receive AOAC PTM certification, Galaxy for Mycotoxins exemplifies the transformative potential of Hyperspectral imaging in ensuring food quality and safety.
“This achievement marks a substantial leap forward in food safety tests, heralding a new era of rapid food safety tests,” said Abhishek Goyal & Shweta Gupta, Founders of ImagoAI.
ImagoAI’s Galaxy for Mycotoxins Test represents a paradigm shift in food safety testing, offering unparalleled speed, accuracy, and sustainability to feed mills, wet mills, dry mills, ethanol plants, grain elevators and food processors worldwide. With AOAC PTM certification, ImagoAI reaffirms its dedication to delivering innovative solutions that redefine the future of food safety.
