Analysis of mycotoxins in food matrices using the Agilent Ultivo Triple Quadrupole LC/MS
This Application Note demonstrates a sensitive and precise method for analyzing 12 mycotoxins in corn and peanut matrices and five mycotoxins in black pepper matrix on the Agilent Ultivo triple quadrupole mass spectrometer.
The Ultivo LC/MS was designed to save laboratory space, while maintaining the performance required for high-throughput analyses. All mycotoxins could be quantified below the maximum levels defined by the European Union Commission Regulations (EC) No. 1881/2006 and No. 105/2010 in each matrix. Excellent method precision was achieved on the Ultivo system, with relative standard deviations (%RSD) of <10 % at the lowest level of quantitation. The combination of the cleanup of matrix interferences, chromatography, and the newly developed triple quadrupole allows for sensitive and precise detection of mycotoxins.
