MaxSignal® Chloramphenicol (CAP) ELISA Test Kit is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of chloramphenicol in feed, fish, eggs, honey, meat (beef, chicken and pork), milk, milk powder, serum, shrimp and urine. Chloramphenicol is a broad spectrum antibiotic which is frequently employed in animal production for its excellent antibacterial and pharmacokinetic properties. However, in humans it leads to hematotoxic side effects. This has led to prohibition of chloramphenicol in the treatment of animals used for food production. Previously, chloramphenicol-residues are determined either radioimmunologically or gas chromatographically. Alternatively, enzyme immunoassays (ELISA) show considerable advantages over conventional methods. Radioactive materials are no longer required, and the processing time is considerably less than the gas chromatographic method. This kit is manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008.
