Mycotoxin Sampling

On December 10, 2014, PMIL hosted an initial webinar at North Carolina State University with Whitaker and Slate presenting the fundamentals of their research. Whitaker’s research divides the testing process into three steps: sampling, sample preparation and analysis. Their results show that, depending on the sampling protocol, more than 80% of the variance is accounted for in the sampling and less than 5% is related to the actually analytical method. While testing is always a balance between cost and accuracy, this evidence suggests greater focus on sampling and sample preparation, rather than analytical methods.
