Determination of aflatoxins in peanut samples

Application No.: VFD0179

Determination of aflatoxins in peanut samples

From extraction to high efficient detection

Cultivation, drying and storage of peanuts 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 note the sample extraction for
peanuts as preparation for a highly sensitive HPLC method is described.
