LC/MS/MS Method Package for Mycotoxins
For LabSolutions™ LCMS
Mycotoxins are highly toxic chemical byproducts from fungi commonly found in crops, and residual content in foods are regulated the world over. This method package provides simultaneous multi-component analysis conditions for mycotoxins subject to the regulations in Japan, the USA, the EU, and China.
Analytical Methods for 27 Mycotoxins
This package contains seven different analytical method conditions and fully optimized MRM transitions for a total of 27 different mycotoxins. Rapid analytical methods are included for a 25 mycotoxin screen, 16 mycotoxins using high-sensitivity conditions, 10 mycotoxins using APCI, and specialized methods for trichothecenes, fumonisins, aflatoxins, and patulin.
Description of Each Method
|A||Rapid analysis method for 25 components||20 min||This method rapidly and simultaneously analyzes 25 Mycotoxins.
Carryovers are minimized by adopting the rinsing function from the Nexera series.
|B||High-sensitivity analysis method for 16 components||30 min||This method analyzes trichothecene mycotoxins with high sensitivity.|
|C||Method for analysis of patulin||10 min||This method analyzes patulin.|
|D||Method for analysis of aflatoxins||30 min||This method analyzes 6 aflatoxins.|
|E||Method for high resolution analysis of type-B trichothecenes||12 min||This method focuses on separation out acetyldeoxynivalenol isomers.|
|F||Method for fumonisins||15 min||Carryovers are minimized by adopting the rinsing function from the Nexera series.|
|G||Method for analysis of 10 components based on APCI||33 min||This method based on ACPI.
APCI sometimes enable better recovery rate in complex samples such as animal feed.

Shimadzu is a leading driver in developing healthcare solutions with technology developments ranging from advanced imaging systems for use in medical diagnosis and treatment, engineering mass spectrometry-based solutions for exploring ways to discover disease biomarkers as well as building MS solutions for daily routine quantitation in biological fluids.
Anti-doping policies, rules and regulations are governed by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). Doping is not only harmful to athletes who take performance-boosting drugs, but also affects the integrity of a sport. Shimadzu instruments can help ensure clean sports and here are a few applications.
Shimadzu has released the LCMS-2050 High-Performance Liquid Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer.
The LCMS-2050 single quadrupole mass spectrometer combines the user-friendliness of an LC detector with the excellent performance of MS to provide a complete package of easy to use high-level performance and compactness.
Shimadzu has released High Resolution Accurate Mass Library for Forensic Toxicology
The High Resolution Accurate Mass (HRAM) Library includes two MS/MS spectral libraries. Each library is built using two different separation conditions and is suitable for targeted or non-targeted screening of drugs of abuse, psychotropic drugs, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and other compounds of toxicological interest.
