Zearalenone is a mycotoxin produced as a secondary metabolite of various Fusarium fungi. Zearalenone is known to cause estrogenic effects at relatively low levels, including infertility, reduced serum testosterone levels and sperm counts, reduced incidence of pregnancy, and change in progesterone levels. In addition, Zearalenone can delay the breeding process and cost the producer significant economic and physical losses.

In Europe, Regulation (EC) 1881/2006 sets maximum levels for Zearalenone in foodstuffs such as processed cereal-based food and baby foods at 20µg/Kg.

AFFINIMIP® SPE Zearalenone are selective solid phase extraction cartridges that selectively clean and concentrate the toxin prior to analysis by HPLC.

Application Note Selective Solid Phase Extraction of Zearalenone from Edible Corn Oil using AFFINIMIP® SPE

Corn oil
This method uses a very fast sample preparation by simply diluting corn oil in a solvent. Sample treatment with AFFINIMIP® SPE Zearalenone allows to obtain clear and accurate results over a wide concentration range. The tests performed show that the chromatograms obtained contain very few interferents and favor high recovery rates.

Cereals and baby food
Zearalenone analysis was performed on corn (41µg/kg), rice (41µg/kg) and cereal-based baby food (10 and 41µg/kg). Very simple chromatograms are obtained after purification with AFFINIMIP®SPE Zearalenone.
