Abstract/Summary

Monitoring the quality of freshwater is an important issue for public health. In samples were collected from several waters in France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, multitoxin detection methods previously developed: a microsphere-based liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) method. cylindrospermopsin, and several analogues of anatoxin-a (ATX-a) was found in any of the environmental samples. Microcystin-LR and microcystin- In the case of ATX-a derivatives, 75% of samples contained mainlyH2-ATX-a and homoanatoxin-a were found in only 1 sample. These results confirm the ATX-a toxins in European freshwaters.
