    Improved Resolution of Mycotoxins from Cereal

    Mycotoxins are a diverse group comprised of hundreds of secondary metabolic products of various fungal species. Several show marked toxicity in humans. Contamination of the food supply with mycotoxins is increasingly prevalent, and can occur during growth, harvest, transportation, processing or storage. Techniques to reduce mycotoxin concentration after contamination are expensive, unreliable and sometimes reversible. Therefore, the removal of contaminated products from the food chain is a primary means of eliminating human exposure. The sensitive and accurate detection of very low levels of these compounds is critical to efforts to identify contaminated products. LC-MS/MS is a popular analytical technique for this purpose. This application explores using Ascentis® Express RP-Amide and Ascentis Express F5 HPLC columns to perform this analysis.

    Improved Reproducibility and Reduced Sample Preparation Time for the HPLC Analysis of Aflatoxins in Raw Peanut Paste

    The US FDA and international regulatory agencies have set contamination levels for aflatoxins in animal feedstuffs. Since Aspergillus may infect commodities pre-harvest, during storage or during processing, monitoring for aflatoxins in associated agricultural commodities at all stages of production is requisite. Field screening methods exist that are adequate to estimate contamination levels for aflatoxins. When additional confirmation or quantification is desired, chromatographic laboratory analysis is often necessary. Preparation of matrix samples prior to chromatographic analysis typically requires extraction and purification. Commonly, immunoaffinity columns (IAC), which employ a multi-step bind and elute mechanism to concentrate and purify aflatoxins, are used to purify matrix samples for subsequent analysis. Solid phase extraction (SPE), an alternate method which may use interference removal, can also be employed.

    Determination of D- and L-isomers of tartaric and malic acids in wines, wine materials, and food additive

    Naturally occurred is predominantly L-form of tartaric acid whereas its D-form and the relevant racemic mixture can be artificially synthesized. Generally, artificial acidification of wine with tartaric acid is allowed by OIV, but only pure L-form must be used for this purpose. Thus the analysis of tartaric acid isomers either in food additives or directly in wine can be an important parameter in clarifying any deviations in wine production. Analysis of isomers of malic acid is also within the necessary oenological procedures stated in OIV recommendations. LUMEX INSTRUMENTS offers the present method which allows determination of L- and D-forms of tartaric and malic acids in wine, wine materials, and special food additives by capillary electrophoresis method.

    Determination of whey proteins in milk samples by capillary gel electrophoresis

    One of the tests for authenticity of milk and dairy foods is the qualitative and quantitative composition of whey proteins and their ratio. Caseins dominate in cow’s milk before its processing (about 80% of total protein), whereas caseins are almost absent in the whey composition whose main components are the following:

    • β-lactoglobulins
    • α-lactalbumin
    • bovine serum albumin
    • immunoglobulins
    • lactoferrin and other minor proteins.

    Quality control of milk products

    In order to maintain high quality of milk products, it is necessary to monitor process quality as rapidly as possible, so that a relevant technological process could be promptly corrected. The most important quality factors of milk products are fat, protein, moisture (total solids), SNF, sugar, salt, lactose and titrated acidity. Commonly, it takes a few hours to make such type of analyses by traditional methods. The use of an InfraLUM® NIR analyzers reduces the analysis time to a couple of minutes.

    The method is based on measuring the transmission spectrum of a sample in the near-IR spectral region and subsequent determination of the analyzed parameters/constituents using a calibration model. Transmission measurement provides highest accuracy and reproducibility of the measurements.
