Semi-quantitative Determination of Zilpaterol in Beef Tissue Samples

Randox Food Diagnostics have recently released a Zilpaterol ELISA and Zilpaterol only array. Both test for the semi-quantitative determination of Zilpaterol in beef tissue samples with an LOD of 0.08ng/ml and cross reactivity of 100% for both in Zilpaterol.

Zilpaterol is a powerful beta adrenergic agonist that has been developed as a growth promoter for cattle leading to enhanced weight gain and carcass yield. Of particular concern is the use of beta agonists prior to slaughter as this poses a risk to the consumer and may result in consumer toxicity. Zilpaterol is typically administered as Zilpaterol Hydrochloride. It is readily absorbed and eliminated via the urine.

The Zilpaterol ELISA aims to give a range of benefits including a fast, reliable, analytical method to detect the presence of Zilpaterol. If performing the test using duplicate wells, this kit has the ability to analyse 40 samples. 

The Zilpaterol array is designed for use on the Evidence Investigator which utilizes our patented Biochip Array Technology, some benefits of this technology include:

  • The Array can detect 18 analytes from one sample
  • Cost effective screening
  • Increased volume testing with high throughput
  • Rapid testing with a quick method.
