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.

News / Events
Handbook of Analysis Procedures for EPA method 533, EPA method 537.1 are now available.
The validity of the analysis performed by each laboratory needs to be confirmed by Quality Control (QC). This article section shows the general analytical procedure for fulfilling QC requirements. Note that the procedure could be modified depending on the situation in the lab and analysts.
Shimadzu has released the CLAM-2040, Fully Automated Sample Preparation Module for LCMS
The CLAM-2040 accompanies you on most of the analytical workflow and improves your overall throughput by drastically reducing the sample preparation time. Simply place the blood tubes in position and the CLAM-2040 performs the next steps automatically, from sample extraction, up to the LCMS analysis and data processing.
Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS)
Per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of persistent and harmful chemicals that can be commonly found in the environment globally. These anthropogenic chemicals can come from various sources such as manufacturing, industrial applications, food contact materials and consumer products, and eventually end up and accumulate in the water, soil and living organisms.
Interpretation of LC Chromatograms Facilitated by Mass Detection and the Mass-it™ Function
The LCMS-2050 mass spectrometer includes Mass-it functionality that can overlay compound mass (m/z) information, obtained with the mass spectrometer, onto UV chromatograms to support supplementing qualitative analysis results obtained using a UV detector.
Technical Background for the LCMS-2050, a Compact Mass Detector for LC
The LCMS-2050 single quadrupole mass spectrometer is highly compact in size, yet provides both high-speed and high-sensitivity analysis. Shimadzu’s technology has been condensed into an instrument miniaturized to the utmost.
Shimadzu has updated LC/MS/MS Method Package for Cell Culture Profiling Ver. 3 for LabSolutions LCMS
Version 3 of this method package adds metabolites characteristic of CHO cells, which are frequently used in the manufacture of monoclonal antibodies. Together with existing analytes, this Method Package enables the analysis of 144 compounds in under 20 minutes per sample.
