Unisensor TwinSensor test kit for antibiotic screening in milk

Monday, 01 February, 2021 | Supplied by: Australasian Medical & Scientific Ltd



Milk from dairy cattle receiving antibiotics for bacterial infections cannot be used for milk supplies until the antibiotics have cleared from the cow’s system. Both Beta-lactams and Tetracycline antibiotics are widely used by vets to treat cows. Both of these antibiotics can be detected in milk samples by the TwinSensor test kit, manufactured by Unisensor.

TwinSensor is a lateral flow kit providing famers and quality assurance personnel a user-friendly, cost-effective tool to detect the presence of Beta-lactams and Tetracycline in milk samples.

Features of the robust kit include: detection of Beta-lactams and Tetracyclines from one sample; user friendly, minimal training required; rapid six-minute time to result; easy-to-read visual result; and ILVO Validated.

The kit is supplied with all consumables required to run a test including both positive and negative controls for method verification. As there is no need for sample processing, cleaning or extraction, the test can be conducted on the farm or in the laboratory.

Visual results are available on the lateral flow device within six minutes of starting the test. Simply compare the test line for each family of antibiotic to the control line to determine the result. An optional Read Sensor 2 device is available for objective interpretation of results.

Unisensor has a range of test kits to monitor milk contaminants which are available from AMSL Scientific.
