Reliable Test Kits for Drug Residues Detection

With the increased use of antimicrobial drugs as well as feed additives in the aquaculture and animal food production sector, food safety concerns have put the spotlight on veterinary drug residues. Although instrumental methods are widely used in drug residues detection, their use in the routine screening of numerous samples is restricted by cost and instrumentation. Fast, reliable and efficient drug residues screening is therefore essential.

Easy-to-use solutions for veterinary drug analysis

Romer Labs offers the most complete portfolio of sensitive and easy-to-use veterinary drugs residue test kits for the detection of drug residues in various samples (e.g., tissue, muscle, urine, milk, egg, honey and feed samples).

The analyte specific test kits use ELISA technology and have low detection limits.

ELISA Tests

AgraQuant® drug residue test kits are accurate and reliable direct competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) which operate on the basis of competition between the drug/metabolite in the sample and the drug enzyme conjugate for a limited number of specific antibody binding sites.

After incubation, the unbound reagents are removed in a washing step. An enzyme conjugate and a chromogen substrate are added, causing a color reaction.

The color intensity is measured with a microplate reader. It is inversely proportional to the drug concentration in the calibrator or sample.

All required components, including a set of five to six calibrators needed to determine the result, are supplied within the test kits.
