The MaxSignal Colistin ELISA Test Kit from Bioo Scientific
News Nov 26, 2015
Research published in Lancet Infectious Diseases last week identified the new MCR-1 gene which renders bacteria immune to antibiotics. Doctors worry that this antibiotic resistance gene could roll back decades of medical progress, as bacteria adapt to resist antibiotics, and potentially lead to an antibiotic apocalypse.
Colistin resistance likely emerged after the drug was overused in farm animals. Colistin is intended to be used by physicians as a drug of last resort to treat Gram-negative superbug infections.
However, it is also used in agriculture against infectious diseases in rabbits, pigs, cattle, sheep and goats, contributing to the emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains.
Bioo Scientific’s MaxSignal® Colistin ELISA Test Kit is the only commercially available ELISA optimized for the screening of colistin in poultry and other meat samples and eggs. This kit combines a unique and proprietary colistin extraction method along with stable standards to deliver dependable, accurate, rapid, cost effective and easy colistin analysis that can help keep colistin misuse out of the food supply chain.
This kit is manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008 (ISO CI#: SARA-2009-CA-0114-A).
