Emerging Toxins in Food and Feed

Video   Dec 23, 2016

 

In the last few years, “mycotoxin analysis” has continuously developed from the targeted analysis of individual mycotoxins to metabolite profiling and metabolomics of (ideally) all secondary metabolites that are present in food crops and which are involved in plant-fungus interactions. High performance liquid chromatography- tandem mass spectrometric LC (HR)MS(/MS) methods have led to unexpected occurrence data on the presence of so-called emerging mycotoxins including novel and conjugated (masked) mycotoxins, as e.g. the glutathione-mediated detoxification products of the Fusarium toxin deoxynivalenol.

The focus of a forensic toxicology laboratory is to determine the presence or absence of drugs in biological samples. Often times when it comes to drug testing, the sensitivity of the analytical method is critical because scientists need to detect chemical compounds in very small amounts. Multidimensional liquid chromatography (2DLC) is one option forensics labs can use to test biological samples, such as urine, blood, oral fluid, hair, to determine if an illicit drug or toxin played a role in a person's death.
