New tests provide cost-effective screening for ractopamine in food samples.

Bioo Scientific has now offered Ractopamine Testing Services to complement our food and feed safety line.

The new tests provide cost-effective screening for ractopamine, a potent ß-agonist, in meat, animal tissue, milk, feed, urine, serum and plasma.

Bioo Scientific’s ractopamine services include extraction methods optimized for high recovery rates from a wide variety of sample types, and have reportable detection limits as low as 0.2 ppb for pork samples. Test results are available in less than one week from receipt of samples.

In addition to testing services, Bioo Scientific also offers an extensive menu of kits for quantitative assessment of ractopamine in food and feed samples for laboratories that wish to perform rapid screening for ractopamine in-house.

The kits are available in a variety of sizes and formats including the MaxSignal® Ractopamine ELISA Kit and AuroFlow™ Ractopamine Strip Tests, which will be launched soon.

Due to public health concerns, Russia, Europe, Taiwan and China have banned the importation of food containing ractopamine residues.

Bioo Scientific’s ractopamine screening options offer ideal solutions for safety and regulatory compliance in the global meat industry.

All kits are manufactured under ISO 9001 standards and provide sensitive, reproducible results to meet strict requirements for reliable analysis in a wide variety of sample types.
