Mycotoxin Methods for Developing Countries–Aflatoxins in Paprika, Corn, Pistachios, Peanuts, and Figs
IUPAC has approved a project to improve and validate a method based on thin-layer chromatography with prior immunoaffinity cleanup for the determination of aflatoxins in corn, peanuts, figs, pistachios, and paprika. This method is intended to be used as an alternative to high-performance liquid chromatography, especially in developing countries. For that reason, mainly laboratories from developing countries are to be involved in validating the method.
