UCT has been featured in a Select Science article, “11 Methods to Ensure Food Safety” with the recently released 'Patulin Analysis in Apple Juice' application. Patulin is a naturally occurring mycotoxin that is produced by several species of fungi, such as Penicillium and Byssochlamys, and has been implicated as a possible carcinogen and teratogen, although an official designation has not yet been made. The application note outlines a simple solid-phase extraction (SPE) procedure for the low level detection of patulin in apple juice.
