The analysis of aflatoxin, a natural, highly carcinogenic toxic substance produced by a mold, is extremely important from a food safety viewpoint. This mold grows on crops such as peanuts and corn, raising concerns about its adverse effects on human health.
Aflatoxin is normally analyzed by HPLC
, and the following shows an example of analysis by and ultrafast HPLC
. Known aflatoxin analogs include G1, G2, B1, and B2, but ultrafast HPLC can complete full analysis in just three minutes.
A high-performance liquid chromatograph (HPLC) measures the content of various components in a sample. A liquid medium flows through the HPLC flow channel. When a sample is introduced into the instrument, the components of the sample are separated in a column and the amount of each component is measured by a detector. HPLC can handle a much wider range of target samples and components than GC
, including difficult-to-vaporize and heat-sensitive components.
