Screening and Quantitation of 191 Mycotoxins and Other Fungal Metabolites in Almonds, Hazelnuts, Peanuts, and Pistachios Using UHPLC/MS/MS
21 Oct 2014
This application note describes the development of a multitarget method for the determination of 191 mycotoxins and other fungal metabolites as well as its validation in almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, and pistachios. In addition to all mycotoxins regulated in the European Union, the method includes many mycotoxins that are frequently found in food. The method comprises a simple extraction with an acidified acetonitrile-water mixture, a subsequent dilution of the raw extract, and measurement by UHPLC/MS/MS. Calibration was performed for all compounds with solvent standards.
