  • Immunoaffinity Column Clean-up with Liquid Chromatography using Post-column Bromination for the determination of Aflatoxins in Peanut Butter, Pistachio Paste, Fig Paste and Paprika Powder: Collaborative Study


A collaborative study funded by the European Commission, Standards, Measurements and Testing Programme was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of an immunoaffinity column clean-up HPLC method for the determination of aflatoxin B. Peanut butter, pistachio paste, dried fig paste and paprika powder samples, both naturally contaminated with aflatoxins, were sent to 16 collaborators in 16 different European Countries. Recoveries ranged from 712 to 109% and the relative standard deviation ranged from 4.6 to 34.2%. The method showed acceptable within-laboratory and between-laboratory precision for all matrices.
