Certification of mass fractions of aflatoxin B(1), B(2), G(1) and G(2) in peanut butter, BCR-385R and BCR-401R

Funded under: FP7-JRC

Abstract

This report describes the preparation of peanut butter (BCR-385R and BCR-401R) matrix reference materials and the certification of their content (mass fraction) of aflatoxins B(1), B(2), G(1) and G(2). The preparation of the materials, the homogeneity and stability studies and the characterisation are described hereafter and the results are discussed. Uncertainties were calculated in compliance with the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM) [1], including uncertainties due to possible heterogeneity and instability.
