AFFINIMIP® SPE Deoxynivalenol

Specific extraction of Deoxynivalenol (DON)

Deoxynivalenol (DON) also known as Vomitoxin is a type B trichothecene produced by various Fusarium fungi and occurs predominantly in grains such as wheat, barley, oats, rye, and maize. Although DON is one of the least acutely toxic trichothecenes, it should be treated as an important food safety issue because it is a very common contaminant of grain.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has established a level of 1 ppm (parts per million) restriction of vomitoxin.In Europe, Regulation (EC) N°1126/2007 sets maximum levels for Deoxynivalenol in cereals with, for instance, respectively 1750µg/kg for unprocessed maize, 750µg/Kg for cereal flours and 200µg/kg for babyfood.

 

AFFINIMIP® SPE Deoxynivalenol are selective solid-phase extraction cartridges 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.
