Mycotoxins are compounds produced by fungi which grow on various groups ranging from grains to fruits, vegetables, nuts and spices. Mycotoxins can be harmful to humans and livestock through consumption of contaminated crops; therefore, mycotoxin levels are monitored in foods to minimize the risk of ingestion. Regulatory agencies around the globe set Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs), which range from <10 to >500ppb to ensure harmful levels of mycotoxins do not enter the food supply. It is important to have the ability to detect and accurately quantify mycotoxin contents at low levels across various food matrices, as each matrix composition poses different challenges in detection.
In this study, we demonstrate the accurate and sensitive quantification of up to 12 regulated mycotoxin compounds in three commonly regulated foods using the novel Ultivo triple quad LC/MS.
A New Tool for the Automated Sample Preparation of Whole Blood Samples by LC-MS using a Commercial AutosamplerPoster
Automated sample preparation reduces the costs per sample and minimizes sample handling errors. Usually expensive and highly specialized pipetting robots are used. However, most of these systems are not designed with a direct interface for LC-MS applications. In addition common pipetting systems are not optimized for smaller scale sample series. Here we present a new tool for liquid handling of whole blood samples and direct sample injection.
