Natural toxins are chemicals that are naturally produced by living organisms. Toxins are found in a staggering range of matrices, from grains, fruits, spices, meat, seafood, milk, and nuts to animal feed. They are of major concern to the worldwide economy because of annual revenue lost due to contamination, the toxicity of the toxins to both animals and humans (many are known carcinogens), and because they are persistent throughout multiple food processing steps. Thermo Scientific has many rugged and sensitive techniques for the analysis on natural toxins and biotoxins. We also have solutions for high throughput laboratories.
The analysis of mycotoxins of food and feed is necessary and often required by legislation. In this application, mycotoxins are used as a model suite of aromatic compounds to demonstrate why and how orthogonal chemistries can help us determine the best column choice when running a sample in a complicated matrix.
A harmful algal bloom is a serious environmental problem that results when the population of microscopic algae in a water system rapidly increases. The algae have the ability to produce marine biotoxins (MBTXs), which are dangerous to humans and other aquatic life.
In recent years, many countries have had to deal with the negative effects of toxic microalgal blooms in both marine and fresh water, such as the death of wild animals and domestic livestock. The food most frequently involved in episodes of human poisoning are bivalve mollusks.
Dr. Jana Hajšlová of the Institute of Chemical Technology stays on the forefront of food safety by arming herself with advanced tools. Discover how Dr. Hajšlová was able to capitalize on the performance of Orbitrap-based mass spectrometry for the analysis of mycotoxins.
Mycotoxins are very stable compounds that cannot be readily destroyed by heating or food processing. Sensitive methods for mycotoxin analysis are needed to protect public health. Learn how Thermo Scientific solutions can help you monitor for mycotoxins in a variety of matrices.
