Aflatoxin B2 is one of the fungal metabolic products produced in food and feed, contaminated by Aspergillus species.
Aflatoxins are mycotoxins that are generated as a result of secondary metabolism of various fungal species such as Aspergillus, Penicillium and Fusarium.
Aflatoxin B2 may be used for the determination of aflatoxin B2 in:
- Animal feed by high performance liquid chromatography with fluorescence detection (HPLC-FLD) as well as quick, easy, cheap, effective, rugged and safe (QuEchERS) extraction method combined with ultra-high performance liquid chromatography-high resolution mass spectrometry (UHPLC-HRMS).
- Eggs by QuEchERS extraction method followed by analysis using UHPLC with tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) operating on electrospray-ionization interface (ESI) mode.
- Brazil nuts by immunoaffinity column (IAC) and clean-up HPLC-FLD.
- Plant-based milk and dairy products by dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (DLLME), QuEchERS extraction method and HPLC-FLD.
Aflatoxin B2 solution may be used as an analytical reference standard for the determination of the analyte in meat, meat products, eggs and milk using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with fluorescence and ultraviolet detection.
