Pickering Laboratories - Analysis of Mycotoxins in Hemp and Hemp- Containing Edible Products

Pickering Laboratories developed an easy and sensitive method to analyze aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2, and ochratoxin A in hemp and hemp-containing edible products. Mycotoxins are isolated using immunoaffinity clean-up columns and analyzed with fluorescence detection. To increase sensitivity of aflatoxins B1 and G1, an in-line photochemical reactor (UVETM) is installed before the detector. This method utilizes standard HPLC equipment and allows laboratories to easily determine these mycotoxins at low ppb levels.

Simultaneous Analysis of Vitamins B1, B2, B3, and B6 in Protein Powders and Supplements

B vitamins are a group of water soluble vitamins that play an important role in cell metabolism. This group consists of a number of compounds including thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin and nicotinamide (vitamin B3), and pyridoxine and pyridoxal (vitamin B6).
