Application note: Determination of aflatoxins in pistachio

In this application note, a simple, robust and highly sensitive method for the analysis of aflatoxins in pistachio samples is described.

Cultivation and storage of nuts like pistachios may contribute to the spread of molds, which produce mycotoxins – toxic secondary metabolites. Their consumption can lead to serious health damage. To ensure consumer safety it is inevitable to provide a simple, robust, and exact method for the analysis of mycotoxins in food, especially the most often occurring aflatoxins. In this application the sample extraction for pistachios as preparation for a highly sensitive HPLC method is described.
