The most sensitive detection methods, particularly for mycotoxins, now use LC-MS coupling: liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry.
The accurate measure of compounds requires the use of calibration reference solutions and/or the addition of internal standards as tracer of the compound.
The internal standard must best mimic the physico-chemical behaviour of the target compound. It must, therefore, have a structure close to the entities to be detected and give a specific signal but differentiated from the molecule to be measured.
A very effective solution is to use as an internal standard the same target molecule, but marked by stable isotopes.

The 13C (labeled) internal mycotoxin standards offered by LIBIOS allow you to measure accurately the toxins contained in your samples by LCMSMS. You can generate calibration curves and control your extraction method.
