Abstract

This paper deals with a project to improve analytical methodology for the determination of the two major fumonisins in maize materials. The project involves preparation of a reference fumonisin B1 and B2 solution, preparation of two maize materials (a blank and a contaminated material), preliminary study of the gamma-irradiation conditions for sterilisation, homogeneity and stability studies for fumonisins in the reference solution and in the maize materials, and an intercomparison study using the above maize materials with the involvement of 23 European laboratories. Results of the intercomparison study are presented together with the homogeneity and stability data relevant to the maize materials and the reference solution.
