AFLATOXINS AND OCHRATOXIN A IN DRIED FRUITS FROM IRAN
A study was undertaken to determine levels of aflatoxins and ochratoxin A in dried fruits such as dried cherry, using a technique preceded by an immunoaffinity clean-up step. For this purpose, a number of 15 samples was analyzed. 13.33 and 6.67% of examined dried cherry samples contained aflatoxin B1, B2 and ochratoxin A. Recoveries were found to be 92.9, 96.7 and 99.2% for aflatoxin B1, aflatoxin B2 and ochratoxin A, respectively, while the detection limit for aflatoxin B1, G1 and ochratoxin A were 0.2 ng g-1 and for aflatoxin B2 and G2 were 0.1 ng g-1.
