Aflatoxins, a mold largely produced by Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus1 are commonly tested mycotoxins found naturally in a wide range of agriculture crops and food products. Due to their harmful effects on human health, animal health, and global trade, aflatoxins are regulated in most countries and have established global limits in a wide variety of matrices.

Deoxynivalenol is a common mycotoxin found in wheat agriculture crops. Being the most popular agricultural cereal crop, wheat is also a dietary staple for about 35% of the global human population and animals. Safety of wheat food and agriculture products is a concern, with deoxynivalenol present in 90% of food and feed samples.

Mycotoxin testing in consumer food products has become increasingly important as global food trade increases, making it necessary to identify mycotoxins efficiently and accurately. Deoxynivalenol, also known as vomitoxin, is a mycotoxin commonly found in wheat feed crops. Because wheat is a highly-used raw agricultural export commodity in many counties for both animal feed and consumer food products, it is an important component in the diets of both humans and animals.

The extraction of samples for specialized liquid chromatography (LC) applications is frequently challenged by the need for a very particular solvent, or mix of solvents which are required to achieve the correct chromatography. These methods typically extract the analytes of interest into a water soluble solvent such as methanol and concentrate the extracts to total dryness before reconstituting the residue in another solvent. The evaporation step can be done using commercially available concentration apparatuses such as water baths or nitrogen gas sparging. However, these require constant analyst intervention to prevent the residue from being carbonized or otherwise thermally degraded.
