Zearalenone is a mycotoxin produced by Fusarium species’ mold. Maximum allowance level in cereal is 1 mg/Kg (in Japan, For animal feed). In this example, sample was prepared by adding 500 μg/kg zearalenone to corn. After sample pretreatment, it was analyzed by an ODS column.
Sample : Sample solution of Corn spiked with
Zearalenone at 500μg/kg, 20μL
Column : Shodex Silica C18M 4E (4.6mmI.D. x 250mm) Eluent : H2O/CH3OH=35/65 Flow rate : 1.0mL/min Detector : Fluorescence(Ex.278nm, Em.460nm) Column temp. : 40°C
