Application Note: Sensitive Femtogram Determination of Aflatoxins B1, B2, G1 and G2 in Food Matrices using Triple Quadrupole LC/MS
9 January 2012

The determination of aflatoxins in food at the femtogram level by triple quadrupole LC/MS is demonstrated in this note from Agilent Technologies. The G6460A Triple Quadrupole LC/MS/MS System is shown to provide fast analysis time (<6 min) with good chromatographic resolution and separation for all four aflatoxins. Recoveries using the dispersive solid phase adsorption approach were between 85–110% for each aflatoxin.
