Proposal titleThe simple, inexpensive and robust quantitative determination of mycotoxins in

foods

AbstractMycotoxins are highly toxic fungal metabolites, found in foods, that attract world-wide

attention because of the significant economic losses caused by their impact on human

health, animal productivity and both domestic and international trade. The populations of

developed countries are protected from mycotoxins by the introduction of strict

regulations (e.g. EC Regulation No. 1525/98 for the aflatoxins) that restrict the levels of

mycotoxins allowed in foods. Although mycotoxins can be detected and quantified using

traditional chromatographic complex to be used by most SMEs within the food chain. The

planned project deliverable consists of a robust, inexpensive combination of simple sample

preparation procedures, and the isolation of mycotoxins on disposable 'mini-columns',

prior to their fully quantitative determination using a novel inexpensive, portable

fluorimetric detector.
