Application Note: Analysis of Mycotoxins in Food Matrices
16 May 2018

Mycotoxins are compounds produced by fungi that grow on crops 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. This study demonstrates the accurate quantification of up to 12 regulated mycotoxin compounds in three commonly regulated foods using the Agilent Ultivo Triple Quadrupole LC/MS.
