The Ultimate Antibiotic Milk Testing Platform
Product News Aug 08, 2011
Randox Food Diagnostics has developed and manufactured a unique multi-analyte milk testing platform. Unlike many other commercially available milk testing products, the Randox multiplex platform offers limits of detection that are sub maximum residue/tolerance levels globally.
Up to 675 test results can be achieved in less than 2 hours using the Antimicrobial I Plus Array that can detect up to 14 sulphonamide compounds and Trimethoprim from a single milk sample.
The Antimicrobial II Array allows detection of multiple classes of antimicrobials including 17 quinolone compounds and 10 tetracycline compounds (including the epimers of oxytetracycline, tetracycline and chlortetracycline). This array also includes tylosin, ceftiofur, streptomycin and florfenicol.
The Beta Lactam Array, soon to be released, will allow detection of all penicillins and cephalosporins including Amoxicillin, Oxacillin, Penicillin G, Cefacetril and Ceftiofur.
Using the Evidence Investigator bench top analyser this testing platform can identify and provide a corresponding concentration for the antimicrobial class present in a sample, considerably reducing the number of confirmatory analyses required.
Randox Food Diagnostics offer a cost effective milk testing platform which can considerably increase sample throughput while reducing labour.
