GPC-LC-MS-MS Method for Mycotoxins in Edible Oil

Researchers at the Munich Technical University and Bavarian Health and Food Safety Authority have developed a comprehensive mycotoxin screening method based on the use of an LCTech GPC ULTRA gel permeation chromatography (GPC) instrument, which is distributed in North America by Pickering Laboratories (Mountain View, California) for sample cleanup before separation and detection.

Researchers at the Munich Technical University and Bavarian Health and Food Safety Authority have developed a comprehensive mycotoxin screening method based on the use of an LCTech GPC ULTRA gel permeation chromatography (GPC) instrument, which is distributed in North America by Pickering Laboratories (Mountain View, California) for sample cleanup before separation and detection. In the method, the GPC instrument separates low-weight mycotoxins from high molecular weight food constituents before analysis by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with mass spectrometry (MS) detection. According to the company, the method substantially lowers the cost of mycotoxin screening by detecting 31 mycotoxins in a single run.
