Mycotoxins are toxins that are naturally produced by organisms of the fungus family such as mushrooms, molds and yeasts. These toxins are commonly found in foodstuffs derived from plants, such as cereals, coffee, nuts, fruits, spices and beverages. Many toxins show various toxicological manifestations ; some are teratogenic, mutagenic and/or carcinogenic, and are associated with various diseases. In this application note, we compare the run time and sensitivity for Aflatoxins M2, B2, G2 and Ochratoxin A using a Fast-LC/LIF method and a capillary-LC/LIF method.
