Uppsala, Sweden, April 3, 2013 / B3C newswire / – Biotage (STO: BIOT), a leading global supplier of solutions and technology for analytical, medicinal and peptide chemistry, has announced the launch of ISOLUTE® Myco SPE columns, a new product for the ‘catch and release’ clean up of mycotoxins from food matrices, prior to analysis by LC-MS/MS.
The ISOLUTE® Myco sorbent is a proprietary polymeric phase (patent pending) optimized for the extraction of a broad spectrum of mycotoxins from a wide range of foodstuffs; enabling chemists to utilize a single SPE product to extract all relevant mycotoxins from an individual foodstuff. Using a single, easy to use sample preparation product, along with optimized matrix specific application notes, scientists can prepare diverse samples for analysis by LC-MS/MS.
ISOLUTE® Myco SPE columns have been developed for use together with LC-MS/MS analysis, their selective clean up enables robust, reliable quantitation of mycotoxins without compromising analytical data quality. The coupling of a dedicated polymer based sorbent with LC-MS/MS analysis saves both time and money as more samples can be processed each day compared to IAC based clean up. The tabless 3 mL format of the ISOLUTE® Myco columns is suitable for a variety of processing equipment including vacuum manifolds, positive pressure manifolds and automated SPE workstations.
“ISOLUTE® Myco SPE columns are a real step forward in mycotoxin sample preparation, helping scientists to fully exploit the advantages of higher productivity and highly selective LC-MS/MS analysis through the use of a truly optimized sample preparation regime” says Dr. Claire Desbrow, Global Product Manager.
