About Megazyme

Deltagen Australia has worked closely with Megazyme since its foundation in 1988 in Sydney. The company was established by Barry V. McCleary, PhD, DScAgr with the core mission of developing and refining analytical methods used to measure the carbohydrates and enzymes in grain and cereal products that affect quality.

Deltagen has operated as Megazyme distributor in Australia for over 30 years, and we are uniquely positioned to draw on this depth of knowledge & experience to provide the local technical support for Megazyme kits. We hold a substantial quantity of kits in stock at our Melbourne warehouse, sufficient to meet the needs of the wide variety of food & feed companies, analytical labs and research institutes, who depend on Megazyme analysis.

Megazyme test kits – all developed and manufactured in-house – have attracted worldwide acclaim for their genuinely innovative methodologies and exceptional component purity.

Megazyme is recognised as one of Europe’s most dynamic and innovative life sciences businesses, having won the prestiguious 2016 Irish Times Innovation Award in the Life Sciences and Healthcare category and went forward to the grand finals at the European Business Awards in 2017 and 2018.

Megazyme was acquired by Neogen, a global animal and food safety company, in 2021. This acquisition aligns with both Megazyme & Deltagen Australia’s mission to provide comprehensive, leading solutions to food producers.

wine analysis

ENZYMATIC BIO-ANALYSIS PLAYS A VITAL ROLE THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE OF THE WINE- MAKING PROCESS:

Before the alcoholic fermentation begins, the nutritional status of the grape juice is determined to ensure optimal growth conditions for the yeast. This includes an estimation of yeast available nitrogen as the product of free ammonia, primary amino nitrogen and L-arginine, and the principle fermentable sugars D-fructose and D-glucose.

During the alcoholic fermentation, the level of acetic acid is monitored to detect infection by Acetobacter sp. and the level of urea is determined in order to establish whether the wine should be treated by the addition of urease to eliminate the risk of forming the carcinogen ethyl carbamate. Concentrations of acetaldehyde, ethanol, glycerol and succinic acid all rise throughout the alcoholic fermentation phase of the vinification process.

If it is elected to perform a malolactic fermentation, the falling level of L-malic acid and rising level of L-lactic acid are monitored. The falling level of citric acid can also be determined.

Numerous analyses are performed in order to determine the quality, stability and authenticity of wine after fermentation is complete, and include enzymatic assays for: acetaldehyde, acetic acid, L-ascorbic acid, ethanol, ethanol/glycerol ratio, D-fructose, D-glucose, D-fructose/D-glucose ratio, glycerol, D-gluconic acid, D-gluconic acid/ethanol ratio, D-gluconic acid/glycerol ratio, L- and D-lactic acid, L- and D-malic acid, D-sorbitol, succinic acid and urea.

Dietary Fibre Analysis / The McCleary Method (HMWDF +SDFS)

Dietary Fibre Analysis CODEX Alimentarius, the international body that provides guidance to national governments on food analysis standards, published their definition of dietary fiber in 2009 (page 2). Existing methods at that time (eg. Prosky, Lee and Matsutani) could not be used to measure all components of dietary fiber under the new definition.

MEASUREMENT OF

HMWDF and SDFS

METHOD LIMITATIONS

A) Slightly underestimates RS2 and RS4
B) Requires method modification to measure fructotriose, a minor constituent in FOS

Dietary Fibre Analysis CODEX Alimentarius, the international body that provides guidance to national governments on food analysis standards, published their definition of dietary fiber in 2009 (page 2). Existing methods at that time (eg. Prosky, Lee and Matsutani) could not be used to measure all components of dietary fiber under the new definition.

In fact, it was found that some of the new components (eg. resistant starch) were partially measured under the existing methods but this led to overestimation of total dietary fiber when a method used for quantification of a single component (eg. AOAC 2002.02; resistant starch) was added to the value for dietary fiber obtained using Prosky, Lee or Matsutani methods – a phenomenon known as “double counting”.

Diagram showing dietary fiber components measured and not measured by AOAC methods 985.29 (Prosky) and 991.43 The requirement for a new integrated method that correctly determined total dietary fiber content as defined by CODEX Alimentarius in foods and beverages containing a wide array of diverse components was met by Prof. Barry McCleary at Megazyme. The new integrated McCleary method received AOAC accreditation along with designation as a Type 1 CODEX method in 2009.

The enzymatic incubation conditions were overhauled completely in order to more closely replicate digestion in the human small intestine by correlating the in vitro method results with in vivo data obtained from ileostomy patients. Starch degradation using porcine pancreatic 〈-amylase (as opposed to bacterial) and amyloglucosidase was performed at 37ºC. This prevents starch gelatinisation which preserves the resistant starch content in the sample thereby allowing it to be accurately measured. Furthermore, the 78% ethanol filtrate is analysed by HPLC and total SDFS content can be determined. The details of the method are outlined below in full:

About

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.

VICAM IN AUSTRALIA

Mycotoxins are toxic metabolites produced by several common species of fungi, they have serious health and economic impacts when present in human and animal food and feed. The mycotoxin limits allowed in various commodities is regulated by Australian and international regulations and is of increasing importance in relation to the export of Australian products.

VICAM’s provide the tools to test all common mycotoxins in a wide variety of agricultural commodities using a range of technologies from cost-effective rapid tests to high end HPLC and LC/MS analysis.

In conjunction with VICAM’s, Deltagen Australia is able to provide sales and technical backup to assist Australian producers managing this problem.
