Shellfish biotoxin testing services to be provided by AST

​AST was recently granted funding to set up a state-of-the-art testing facility specifically for shellfish biotoxin testing. This will support Tasmania’s shellfish industry by providing local expert testing services for rapid biotoxin information to industry stakeholders.

New instrumentation and equipment will be purchased, including an LC-MS/MS, which will be specifically dedicated to shellfish biotoxin testing. The associated analytical test methods will become NATA quality accredited at AST’s upcoming NATA technical audit later in 2017.
