About this book


Mycotoxins, common food contaminants produced by molds, are associated with a broad range of serious toxic effects, including carcinogenicity, neurotoxicity, and reproductive and developmental toxicity, are subject to regulatory restrictions in more than 80 countries. In Mycotoxin Protocols, a panel of accomplished scientists describe their innovative, cutting-edge methods for determining the levels of various mycotoxins in foods and feeds. Almost half of the methods presented involve molecular-based immunochemical or immunochemical/chromatographic techniques. The necessary equipment, reagents, and procedures are given in great detail for the analysis of a wide variety of significant mycotoxins, including aflatoxins, aflatoxin M1, cyclopiazonic acid, ochratoxin A, trichothcenes, moniliformin, fumonisins, zearalenone, Stachybotrys toxins, citrinin, patulin, ergot alkaloids, and Alternaria toxins. General techniques for mycotoxin analyses, sampling procedures for collecting representative test samples, isolation techniques, and techniques for the detection and identification of toxins and impurities are also included.
Up-to-date and highly practical, Mycotoxin Protocols provides a comprehensive collection of the latest bioanalytical techniques for determining mycotoxins in foods and feeds.
