Determination of Mycotoxins with Photochemical Post Column Derivatization
15 September 2016
In this application note, a fast method for the simultaneous determination of aflatoxins and other relevant mycotoxins in one run is described with an easy derivatization step using the UVE photochemical reactor. Cultivation and storage of food and animal feed may contribute to the spread of molds, which produce mycotoxins – toxic secondary metabolites. Therewith, it is inevitable to provide a simple and exact method for the analysis of mycotoxins in food, especially the most often occurring aflatoxins to ensure consumer safety.
