Abstract

Certification of the mass fraction of aflatoxin B1 in acetonitrile (ERM-AC057), aflatoxin B2 in acetonitrile (ERM-AC058), aflatoxins G1 in acetonitrile (ERM-AC059), and of aflatoxin G2 in acetonitrile (ERM-AC060)
This report describes the preparation of aflatoxin B1, B2, G1 and G2 calibrants (ERM-AC057, ERM-AC058, ERMAC059 and ERM-AC060) and the certification of their content (mass fraction) in the solutions.
The preparation of the calibrants, the homogeneity and stability studies and the characterisation with a discussion of the results is described hereafter. Uncertainties were calculated in compliance with the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM) [2] and include uncertainties due to the processing, purity assessment and possible instability.
