Topic: Rapid Detection of Major Mycotoxins:  Improving Performance for Inbound Grains and Outbound Co-Products

Summary: The evolution of rapid mycotoxin detection methods offers greater flexibility for ethanol laboratory managers to improve throughout and reduce technician time (and costs) while delivering sound analytical data to the quality management team.  Lateral flow strip tests paired with standalone reader systems, as well as immunoaffinity columns with fluorometry, LC or LC-MS/MS provide analytical support for mycotoxin prevention, management and mitigation strategies.

Bio: Patricia is an Iowa native who has spent more than 25 years serving food and agricultural safety and quality – especially in the area of mycotoxins.  After graduating from Iowa State University with a BS in Biology, her career path has evolved from laboratory application development in near-infrared spectroscopy and supercritical fluid extraction – to bringing industry changing rapid methods and analytical approaches that will simplify data collection and enable mycotoxin prevention worldwide.
