Mycotoxins are highly toxic compounds often found in the food. It is of paramount importance to have analytical technique for point-of-care on-spot detection for authorised personnel to immediately take the action required. Electrochemistry offers the portability for miniaturized sensor of mycotoxins. Here we show that edge-plane pyrolytic electrode offers excellent selectivity and sensitivity towards simultaneous detection of zearalenone and citrinin. This will have a great impact for point-of-care mycotoxin detection.
