Determination of Toxins and Tetrodotoxin in Shellfish using HILIC/MS/MS and MassHunter Software

Paralytic Shellfish Toxins (PST) are potent neurotoxins produced by several species of phytoplankton, and may bio-accumulate in filter-feeding shellfish. Human consumption of contaminated shellfish can result in Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (PSP). As a result, monitoring of PST in shellfish is a statutory requirement in many regions of the world, including the EU. However, the detection of PSTs is challenging, due to their highly polar hydrophilic nature and the large number of structurally similar congeners.
Tetrodotoxin (TTX) is another low molecular weight toxin thought to be produced by marine bacteria, which has been found to accumulate in bivalve shellfish. While TTX is not yet stipulated in the EU regulatory requirements, it is known to be as toxic as some analogs of PST.

Monitoring TTX along with other PSTs in shellfish could further protect public health. However, current methodologies used in control labs (including LC/FLD) are not suitable for its detection, and these labs do not have spare resources to add a further test. A method that can detect all PSTs and TTX together in one analytical method would be advantageous for monitoring the risk from all these hydrophilic marine toxins.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss the development of a combined method to ensure the high quality of shellfish, intended for human consumption, using hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry (HILIC/MS/MS) and MassHunter software.

This presentation will cover:

  • a discussion of equipment requirements, sample preparation, and method parameters to perform robust and reliable HILIC/MS/MS, and the quality procedures to assure that these requirements are always in place.
  • a method verification exercise along with validated single-laboratory and multi-laboratory method performance characteristics demonstrating that it is suitable for routine analysis.

What Can a Nitrogen Atomic Emission Plasma Do for You and Your Lab? Learn Why You Might Want to Move to a Microwave Plasma Syst
Reliable and robust, easy to use, and cost effective – these are the reasons that flame AA has remained a technology of choice in these application areas. In recent years, the expansion in use of the microwave plasma-atomic emission spectrometer (MP-AES) as a replacement for flame AA has highlighted the evolving needs of the modern laboratory, with an even greater emphasis on cost-effective elemental analysis and the ability to measure lower levels of the target elements with less sample preparation and improved safety. In this presentation, we show the advancements in capacity and capabilities now available from the next generation of MP-AES technology.
