Protocol for preconcentration and quantification of microcystins using LC-MS

Methods for detecting and quantifying one or more microcystin compounds in a sample are described. The methods may include a preconcentration step, and generally utilize an LC-MS or LC-MS/MS analysis with an Orbitrap Fusion mass spectrometer. The methods provide excellent recoveries and limits of quantification of microcystins.
