Due to the lower sensitivity of this method (limit of detection of 2 [micro]g/kg) the samples that were collected in 2009 were analyzed using the VICAM AflaTest[R] immunoaffinity fluorometric method [17] (limit of detection of 1 [micro]g/kg) that quantifies total aflatoxin (B1+B2+G1+G2) concentrations using AflaTest[R] Fluorometer Series-4.

Serum cortisol, for example, can be determined in several ways: with the fluorometric method, noted for its high blank values; with the competitive protein-binding method, which can, under unusual circumstances, measure steroids other than cortisol; or with the antibody method, which is highly specific.
