Determination of regulated mycotoxins aflatoxins, ochratoxin A, patulin, fumonisins, zearalenone, nivalenol/deoxynivalenol, T2 and HT2 toxins on feed and foodstuffs.

Mycotoxins are toxic secondary metabolites produced by fungi on numerous foodstuffs such as cereals, dried fruits, nuts and spices. Most mycotoxins are chemically stable and survive food processing.

Several hundred different mycotoxins have been identified, but the most commonly observed mycotoxins are regulated due to the concern they present for human health and livestock (aflatoxins, ochratoxin A, patulin, fumonisins, zearalenone, nivalenol/deoxynivalenol, T2 and HT2 toxins).

AFFINISEP has developed selective SPE columns to analyze these mycotoxins in foodstufs and feed:

    • Analysis of patulin by AFFINIMIP® SPE Patulin to concentrate and cleanup prior to analysis by HPLC or LC-MS.
      In addition, pectinase, standard and any equipment to implement this analysis are available.
    • Analysis of deoxynivalenol by AFFINIMIP® SPE Deoxynivalenol for the extraction of Deoxynivalenol (DON) and its analogues 3-AcetylDON and 15-AcetylDON prior to analysis by HPLC from cereals such as Oat, Wheat, Corn or processed food (pasta…) and babyfood.
    • Analysis of FumoZon by AFFINIMIP® SPE FumoZON to clean and concentrate Zearalenone and Fumonisins B1+B2 prior to analysis by HPLC-MS.
    • Analysis of multimyco LCMSMS by AFFINIMIP® SPE Multimyco LCMSMS: is a Multimycotoxins solid phase extraction cartridge that SIMULTANEOUSLY cleans up and concentrates main regulated mycotoxins  prior to analyses by LC-MS/MS (AFLATOXINS B1, B2, G1, G2; OCHRATOXIN A; HT-2; T-2; FUMONISINS B1, B2; ZEARALENONE; DEOXYNIVALENOL (DON)).
