Determination of aflatoxins in pistachio samples

Application No.: VFD0180

Determination of aflatoxins in pistachio samples

from extraction to high efficient detection

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.
