Vicam, A Waters Business
Founded in 1987 by Harvard and MIT scientists and agribusiness executives, VICAM commercialized its flagship immunoaffinity column for the rapid detection of aflatoxin. At that time, the development of rapid, user-friendly mycotoxin tests was still in its infancy. With a leadership team that included pioneering aflatoxin researcher Dr. Gerald Wogan, VICAM created a worldwide reputation for leadership in the development of rapid diagnostic solutions. VICAM’s application of rapid immunochemical techniques to contaminant detection in particular would ultimately change the way food and agricultural businesses worldwide monitor their raw materials and finished goods for quality and safety. Today customers in more than 100 countries depend on VICAM’s reliable, cost-effective frequent monitoring solutions to achieve their quality, compliance, and business objectives.
