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.

Comments from the chemistry community are welcome and should be addressed to the project coordinator, Prof. Elke Anklam, European Commission, DG Joint Research Center, Institute for Health and Consumer Protection, Food Products Unit, TP 260, I-21020 Ispra, Italy; Tel./Fax: +39 0332 785390; E-mail: [email protected]. See projects/1999/6_2_99.html for project description and update.
