SummaryIn this paper we report results obtained from analysis of domoic acid and its analogues, toxins responsible for incidents of amnesic shellfish poisoning (ASP) in several places world-wide, by use of liquid chromatography coupled with electrospray ionization mass spectrometry. Different chromatographic and mass spectrometry conditions were evaluated with the aim of achieving the best chromatographic performance combined with the optimum mass spectrometric response. From the results… 

Mass spectrometric detection in chromatography. Trends and perspectives.

The newest results in the use of miscellaneous mass spectrometric detection methods in various chromatographic techniques are compiled and critically evaluated. Examples of application in clinical

Marine biotoxins in shellfish – Domoic acid 1 Scientific Opinion of the Panel on Contaminants in the Food Chain ( Question No EFSA-Q-2006-065 H ) Adopted on 2 July 2009

Domoic acid (DA) and its isomers are marine biotoxins causing amnesic shellfish poisoning (ASP) in humans. Symptoms of ASP include gastrointestinal symptoms (vomiting, diarrhoea or abdominal cramps)



Ion-spray mass spectrometry of marine neurotoxins.

Combining liquid chromatography with ion-spray mass spectrometry allowed the determination of domoic acid and some of its isomers in toxic shellfish tissue extracts and provided useful fragment-ion spectra for all compounds.

Rapid Extraction and Cleanup for Liquid Chromatographic Determination of Domoic Acid in Unsalted Seafood

Domoic acid is the toxin responsible for incidents of amnesic shellfish poisoning. A rapid extraction and cleanup for the liquid chromatographic determination of domoic acid in unsalted seafood is

Analysis of domoic acid isomers in seafood by capillary electrophoresis

Comparison with LC showed that comparable precision and accuracy could be attained by the two techniques for the analysis of domoic acid based upon capillary electrophoresis combined with UV absorbance detection.

Pennate Diatom Nitzschia pungens as the Primary Source of Domoic Acid, a Toxin in Shellfish from Eastern Prince Edward Island, Canada

An outbreak of food poisoning in Canada during autumn 1987 was traced to cultured blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) from the Cardigan Bay region of eastern Prince Edward Island and represents the first known occurrence of human poisoning by this neurotoxin.
