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.
