Detection methods

Innovative detection methods are developed both for screening as well as confirmatory analysis of mycotoxins. Immuno-based assays, including rapid tests such as lateral flow dipsticks as well as biosensors are developed and applied to food, feed and biological samples. Focus is also put on synthesis of recognition elements (monoclonal antibodies and molecularly imprinted polymers) and new sensitive labels (quantum dot nanolabels).  For identification and confirmation, chromatographic methods are developed mainly with mass spectrometric detection. A metabolomics platform has been established.
