Table 3: Comparison of the methodologies and BMAA quantitative results of environmental and food samples used in this study and previous publications

From: Quantification of neurotoxin BMAA (β-N-methylamino-L-alanine) in seafood from Swedish markets

Table 3
  1. *Values in μg BMAA/g wet weight of tissues, others in μg BMAA/g dry weight of tissues.
  2. **Samples from Swedish west coast.
  3. ***For comparison with other studies, the method LOD/LOQ in μg/g used in these two studies can be converted into BMAA amount by multiplying by the tissue weight, about 10 mg.
  4. ND: not detectable; NA: not analyzed; NR: not reported; FD: fluorescent detector.
