Speaker : Angelika Köpf ( LC Tech GMBH)
After graduating as Master for Food Technology and Biotechnology at the Technical University Munich in 2001 Angelika Köpf joined as a scientist the Proteomic group of Prof. Görg, who, as inventor of the 2D Gel-electrophoresis, was leading in sample preparation work to enable proteomics research.
With joining LCTech GmbH as Sales Manager in 2004, Angelika used her experience on methodological work to standardize manual sample preparation by offering the adequate automated sample preparation solution for customer in food, feed and environmental analysis.
Since then Angelika held several positions in Sales- and Product-Management for automated sample preparation and was stationed in various countries, before she joined LCTech GmbH again in 2016 as Head of Sales.
Mycotoxins are naturally occurring metabolites of mold fungus, which are highly toxic for humans and animals and can be accumulate in food and feed. They are regulated by the European Community (EC) respectively worldwide.
Typical kind of fungi that produce mycotoxins are Aspergillus-, Penicillium-, Fusarium- und Claviceps-fungi. They are separated in fields or storage fungi. Unlike residues (e. g. pesticides) they are attributed to the contaminants and are subject to the mycotoxin maximum amount regulation.
Regulated Mycotoxins (EU)
- Aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2
- Fumonisins B1and B2
- Ochratoxin A
This Webinar would be mainly focusing on different sample preparation and clean-up Techniques. Extraction of Mycotoxins from different complex matrices. And briefly on the detection techniques.
