Contamination of Food and Feed

Approximately 25 % of global food production is destroyed due to mycotoxin contamination. The analytical detection of toxins in food and feed is therefore of great importance for the health of the world's population and for economic efficiency.

23 x 40 mL to 500 – 900 µL in under 3 h or 53 x 10 mL nearly to dryness in 2 h.
