New Mycotoxin Cleanup Columns!
The final elution volume is only 400uL instead of the typical 2mL – and yet has the same final concentration as with other columns. As most methods inject only 20-50uL of sample onto the autosampler, this volume is more than enough for analysis.
If you would like additional information, please email us: email@example.com

Pickering Laboratories’ Mycotoxin Workshop held at MidWest AOAC in Lincoln, NE
|Sculpture on U of NE-Lincoln campus|
Southern Section AOAC Meeting
From April 11-12, Pickering attended the Southern Section AOAC Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia.
The meeting was well attended, and we enjoyed some good talks with current and future customers as well as long-time friends in the industry.
In preparation for our Vendor Seminar (see below), I did some research about the southern states, and Georgia in particular. In the process, I learned a couple of interesting facts about Georgia. For example, even though Georgia is nicknamed the Peach State, they’re only the 3rd largest producer of peaches. Turns out the state is known for its Quality rather than the quantity of the fruit. According to the internet, Georgia produces A LOT of poultry & eggs (Georgia is ranked 1st in the US for production of broilers*), but also peanuts as well as cotton and tobacco.
We presented a Vendor Seminar at the meeting about our Aflatoxin Analysis products. We opted for a “show & tell” approach in which we brought in the key components to the method:
|UVE Photochemical Reactor|
|AflaClean Immunoaffinity Columns|

Pickering Laboratories Introduces Key Products to Herbal Supplements Market
By Mike Gottschalk
The Supplyside West Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada October 19-23, is a very important Herbal Supplement Industry event. It provides important educational and networking opportunities to this $29 billion market. Since the FDA sent out required current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) in 2007, the Herbal Supplement producers are working to meet the new requirements before the FDA audits. These regulations are intended to insure the quality, purity and safety of the Herbal Supplement products available today. Pickering Laboratories had a booth at the show to assist the producers and laboratories with the instrumentation, chemistry, methods, and support for the analysis and clean-up of samples for Amino Acids, Aflatoxins, Carbamate pesticides, Glyphosate Herbicides, and 23 other methods.
Click on the links to see our Latest Method Abstracts, introduced at the show:
1) MA 215: Clean-up and Determination of Alfatoxins in Peanuts and Peanut Butter
2) MA 218: Clean-up and Analysis of Aflatoxins and Ochratoxin A in Herbs and Spices
The annual meeting of the AOAC International in Orlando, Florida on September 20-25, also had a strong emphasis on Herbal Supplements testing. The AOAC organization is central to FDA efforts to provide analytical structure to testing methods for this newly regulated industry. Pickering Laboratories participated in the AOAC sponsored Single Laboratory Validation of Multi-residue Mycotoxin Analysis in Corn. For this work, Pickering Laboratories was awarded the “Single Lab Validation of the Year”. This pivotal work in the analysis of Mycotoxins continues in Herbal Supplements as well as agricultural products.
Send us an email to email@example.com to request a copy of our poster: “Clean-up and Determination of Alfatoxins in Peanuts and Peanut” from the AOAC show.
Our next show is Pittcon 2011 on March 13-18 in Atlanta, Georgia.
See you there!
