Screening and Verifying Mycotoxins in Food with Q-TOF LCMS and an Accurate Mass Library
6 May 2015

This application note describes the creation of an accurate mass library for mycotoxins and related metabolites and its application for the screening of mycotoxins in food. An Agilent 1290 Infinity LC coupled to an Agilent 6550 iFunnel Q-TOF LC/MS was operated in positive and negative electrospray with dual-spray Agilent Jet Stream Technology. Accurate mass spectra were acquired for a large collection of mycotoxins and related metabolites in one or both ionization modes and for all relevant ion species.
