2 ©2011 Waters Corporation 2 Mycotoxins of economic, health and agricultural significance  Mycotoxins are metabolic products of food spoilage fungi that induce toxic responses when consumed by animals or people.  Hundreds of mycotoxins have been identified; They will fall into many different chemical classes, and induce a wide variety of toxic responses.

12 ©2009 Waters Corporation | COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL 12 Mycotoxin Analysis Using LC  Greater sensitivity  Able to deal with complex sample types  Exisitng methods supporting mycotoxin detection  Ethanol plant laboratory already understands and uses LC  Good fit for routine detection of toxins in corn, DDG, DDGS and CDS

13 ©2011 Waters Corporation 13 High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)

14 ©2011 Waters Corporation 14 Samples preparation the same as for fluorometer Blend a sample with extraction solution Filter through fluted filter paper Dilute with water or buffer solution Filter through microfiber filter paper Pass 10mL extract through IAC Make sure to pass through drop by drop (about 1-2 drops/second Wash column with water or buffer Elute with Methanol or other Eluting solution at rate of 1 drop per 2 seconds or slower

15 ©2011 Waters Corporation 15 Difference from fluorometer methods Collect the eluate, but do NOT add developers. Eluate can be diluted with water or dried down and reconstituted in the mobile phase. Then sample is injected onto the HPLC or UPLC

16 ©2011 Waters Corporation 16 Making Your HPLC System Ready for Mycotoxin Testing  Aflatoxins -Post column chemical or photochemical reactor and detector -PHRED  Ochratoxin -Fluorescence detector  Fumonisin -Post column derivatization with OPA and 2ME -Fluorescence detector  Vomitoxin (DON) -Absorbance detector (DON has no natural fluorescence)  T2/HT2 -Derivatize with 1-AN -Fluorescence or absorbance detection

17 ©2011 Waters Corporation 17 AflaTest The aflatoxin molecule is naturally fluorescent, but must be derivatized to enhance the fluorescence of aflatoxin B1 and G1 with one of the following: (1) post column iodine or bromine (2) Photochemical reactor (PHRED, PhCR), (3) KOBRA cell (4) TFA 4.3 ppb naturally contaminated aflatoxin corn sample

18 ©2011 Waters Corporation 18 Post-Column PHRED for Aflatoxin Detection with LC Example : The following HPLC chromatogram shows quantification of total aflatoxin (G 2 、 G 1 、 B 2 、 B 1) with PhCR post column Derivatization following AflaTest® immunoaffinity column for sample clean up. HPLC Conditions: Column: Biosil 5u Pro-ODS-U 4.6mm x 150mm Mobile Phase: Methanol : H2O = 45 : 55 Flow Rate: 1ml/min Fluorescence Detector: EX 440nm EM365nm Post Column derivatization: PhCR-02525 Standard Solution: Aflatoxin G2 、 G1 、 B2 、 B1 = 10, 3, 10, 3 ppb in Methanol Injection: 20-100ul Temp: 30 ℃

19 ©2011 Waters Corporation 19 PHRED Post Column Photochemical Reactor PhCR photochemical reactor PhCR is a UV light that reacts with mycotoxins as a post HPLC column derivatization method for aflatoxin. It is easy to setup and operate. The sample passes through the PHRED unit prior to going through the fluorescence detector.

20 ©2011 Waters Corporation 20 Preparation of aflatoxin standards for HPLC To make standards for HPLC for 10ml (1g equivalent) AflaTest methods only: 2.6ppb (1B1:0.3B2:1G1:0.3G2ng/g) X 1g = 2.6ng ÷ 0.026ng/µl standard = 100µl standard added to 900µl methanol 26ppb (10B1:3B2:10G1:3G2ng/g) X 1g = 26ng ÷ 0.26ng/µl standard = 100µl standard added to 900µl methanol 52ppb (20B1:6B2:20G1:6G2ng/g) X 1g = 52ng ÷ 2.6ng/µl standard = 20µl standard added to 980µl methanol 104ppb (40B1:12B2:40G1:12G2ng/g) X 1g = 104ng ÷ 2.6ng/µl standard = 40µl standard added to 960µl methanol We add 1ml water to all our standards and samples before injecting onto the HPLC to make the solvent for the standards and samples similar to the mobile phase. Instructions for making standards for other mycotoxin products is in each of the respective HPLC instruction manuals.

24 ©2011 Waters Corporation 24 DONtest  DON molecule is not fluorescent  Detected by absorbance  Samples extracted with water 1.11ppm Naturally Contaminated Wheat

25 ©2011 Waters Corporation 25 ZearalaTest  Zearalenone naturally fluoresces and absorbs  Cross reactive with zearalenone, zearalanone, alpha-zearalenol, beta-zearalenol, alpha-zearalanol, and beta-zearalanol 1.0 ppm spiked zearalenone sample

26 ©2011 Waters Corporation 26 Multiple Mycotoxin Detection Simultaneous detection of multiple mycotoxins by LC or LC/MS/MS  AflaOchra HPLC  AOZ  DON/NIV  T2/HT-2  Myco 6in1+ -Aflatoxin -Ochratoxin -Fumonisin -Zearalenone -Vomitoxin (DON) -Nivalenol -T-2 -HT-2

27 ©2011 Waters Corporation 27 Summary  HPLC systems at the ethanol facility may be outfitted for mycotoxin detection  Increased productivity of LC unit  Decreased overall cost of mycotoxin monitoring  Better overall mycotoxin monitoring with single and multiple mycotoxin detection capabilities.
