Seminar 19apr2018. Marine Biotoxins.

CI8-logos-aecosan-EU-RL-MB_Ministerio-Citexvi-bateasOn Thursday 19th of April of 2018 at 10 a.m. at “Sala de Audiovisuales” room, module 6, of CINBIO.

Tittle: Análisis de biotoxinas marinas emergentes en Europa

The speaker will be Dr. Jorge Giraldez from the group “Chemical Análisis of aquatic biotoxins, environmental and food pollutants-CI8”. EU Reference Laboratory for Marine Biotoxins.

The talk will be in SpanishAbstract:

Marine biotoxins are natural contaminants of the marine environment produced as secondary metabolites by bacteria and microalgae, affecting most of them to the bivalve molluscs. The consumption of food contaminated with these toxins can cause different poisoning confitions, posing a risk to public health.

Today, two groups of marine toxins are gathering general attention in Europe, ciguatoxins (CTX) and tetrodotoxins (TTX). The development of analytical methodologies for the determination of these two groups of Biotoxins in different matrices constitutes the priority research line in which the group currently works. In this seminar a summary of the work developed in the development of methods for Tetrodotoxins will be presented.
