Award recognizes VICAM’s significant contributions to the safety and quality of the global food supply chain

Today, Waters Corporation (NYSE:WAT) announced VICAM®, a Waters® Business, received the 2016 North American Food Safety Diagnostics Market Leadership Award from Frost & Sullivan.

VICAM’s corporate mission is based on the fundamental human need for safe and abundant food that is wholesome, healthful, and devoid of mold mycotoxins. As a world-leading provider of mycotoxin testing solutions, VICAM develops USDA and AOAC-approved rapid quantitative screening and quantitative test solutions for a wide variety of mycotoxins. These solutions not only minimize the costly consequences of mycotoxin contamination, but also help ensure food safety from farm-to-fork.

Mycotoxins are naturally occurring chemical byproducts of ubiquitous mold species that are natural inhabitants of crop soils. Severe rain or drought can encourage mycotoxin production and, once released, mycotoxins are difficult to manage and virtually impossible to destroy. The USDA, FDA, EU, and other international government agencies impose specific regulations and guidelines for acceptable levels of mycotoxins. Producers and exporters use on-site and laboratory testing to ensure regulatory compliance and to protect human and animal health from illnesses associated with mycotoxins, including cancer, liver damage, and feed refusal in animals.

Raghu Tantry, Principal Analyst at Frost & Sullivan, noted, "With its wide portfolio of rapid tests for mycotoxins coupled with its access to the latest research advancements, industry expertise, and regulatory updates, VICAM is poised to meet the safety testing needs of every sector of the modern and complex global food supply chain for food and beverages."

Tantry continued, “Through its comprehensive product line vetted by industries leaders and trusted by customers in more than 100 countries, VICAM is considered to be the preferred global provider for next generation food safety technology and mycotoxin testing solutions.”

“On behalf of the employees of VICAM and all of Waters Corporation, we are honored to receive this recognition from such a well-respected organization like Frost & Sullivan,” said Marjorie Radlo-Zandi, Managing Director, VICAM. “As the trusted partner of the global food and agricultural industry, VICAM is proud to consistently deliver the superior products, responsive service, and individualized support for industry-specific goals that is expected from our world-leading products.”
