Mycotoxin Analysis

Around 25% of global food production is destroyed due to mycotoxin contamination. The analytical detection of toxins in food and feed therefore holds a correspondingly high importance for cost-effectiveness and the health of the global population.

Samples are traditionally prepared using highly selective immunoaffinity columns (IAC). However, the use of LC-MS/MS is growing in importance for the multiple determination of different toxins and requires different clean-up methods. Sample preparation with CrossTOX® enables 18 toxins to be detected in one working step.

How Does LCTech Improve your Mycotoxin Analysis?

LCTech offers products and automation concepts for mycotoxin analysis that support both food and feed manufacturers and laboratories. These include highly-selective immunoaffinity columns (IAC), specific SPE columns and CrossTOX® as a multi-toxin column. All columns can be used manually or automatically; the SMART columns are particularly ideal for fast sample preparation with low solvent use.

“The CrossTOX® SPE column enables us to maintain the entirety of our chromatographic systems.”
