Familiarize participants with the regulation concerning mycotoxins in food and fit-for-purpose laboratory methods to identify and quantitate mycotoxins.
Commodities: Wheat, corn, milk, apples, peanuts
This course is designed for laboratory scientists and managers to familiarize them with the regulations concerning mycotoxins in food and fit-for-purpose laboratory methods to identify and quantitate mycotoxins. After reviewing the relevant compliance programs from FDA and USDA, the students will learn and practice traditional and modern laboratory methods to prepare samples and standards, run ELISA plate and lateral flow methods, fluorescence and UV detection, and LC-MS/MS analyses.
An optional 2 additional days of laboratory work is offered to practice the techniques learned in the course (Dec. 12-13).
- To understand the FDA and USDA Mycotoxin Compliance Program
- Be able to prepare samples and standards for mycotoxin analysis
- Be able to perform ELISA tests with microwell and lateral flow techniques
- Be able to perform the fluorescence method for peanuts
- Understand the method and analyze samples by LC with fluorescence, UV and mass spectrometry detection
