Paralytic Shellfish Toxins. Determination in mussels, clams, oysters and scallops by post-column oxidation and HPLC/ fluorescence. (NMKL 197, 2013)


The method is intended for the quantitative determination of paralytic shellfish toxins (PST) in mussels, softshell clams, sea scallops, and oysters. The method determines the concentrations of individual PSTs, including saxitoxin (STX), neosaxitoxin (NEO), gonyautoxins-1 to -5 (GTX1 - 5), decarbamoylgonyautoxins-2 and -3, (dcGTX2-3), decarbamoylsaxitoxin (dcSTX), and N-sulfocarbamoylgonyautoxin-2 and -3, (C1 and C2), in edible issues, as well as the total toxicity of the test samples above 0.10 mg STX dihydrochloride equivalents/kg of tissue (mg STX∙diHCl/kg). Paralyyttiset nilviäis- ja äyriäis­toksiinit. Määritys sini­simpukoista, hieta­simpukoista, ostereista ja kam­pa­simpukoista kolonnin jälkeisellä hapetuksella ja HPLC/fluoresenssi-menetelmällä (NMKL 197, 2013)
