This application note describes a Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) protocol for the extraction of a range of mycotoxins from cereal based infant food using ISOLUTE® Myco with UHPLC-MS/MS. Mycotoxins are toxic metabolites produced by fungal molds on food crops. Regulation and legislation for testing of mycotoxin contamination has established which mycotoxins are prevalent on a wide variety of food crops. This application note describes an SPE protocol appropriate for LC-MS/MS analysis of a range of mycotoxins found on cereal based infant food.
The method described in this application note achieves high recoveries of relevant mycotoxins from a cereal based infant food with low %RSDs and LOQs.
ISOLUTE Myco solid phase extraction columns provide robust, reliable sample preparation for multiple mycotoxin classes from a wide range of foodstuffs.
Using a single, easy to use sample preparation product, along with optimized matrix specific application notes, scientists can prepare diverse food/crop samples for analysis by LC-MS/MS.
