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.
Nitrogen metabolism in Mycobacterium tuberculosis: a systems-based approachPoster
Previous studies suggested that Mycobacterium tuberculosis obtains nitrogen from a diverse range of intracellular nutrients including amino acids. Here, we use a novel system’s based three-pronged approach to define pathways for uptake and assimilation of nitrogen.READ MORE
