When to use UVE photochemical derivatisation?

Due to the low aflatoxins limits in food and low inherent fluorescence of aflatoxin B1 and G1, aflatoxin analysis needs to be optimised through derivatisation.

This is done photochemically with the UVE UV-Derivatization Module under UV light radiation at 254 nm. The UVE reactor can also be used to enhance the detection for other mycotoxins such as deoxynivalenol (DON) or zearalenone (ZON), phenylurea pesticides, barbiturates, vitamin B3 and N-nitrosodiethylamine (NDELA).
