Drug residues in meat test kit

Wednesday, 25 May, 2005 | Supplied by: http://www.biacore.com/



Biacore International has launched a food safety kit to detect veterinary drug residues in meat products.

The company claims that its Qflex Kit is capable of rapidly detecting 14 different b-Agonists - potentially toxic veterinary drugs used as growth promoters.

Biacore Q and Qflex Kits offer automated, label-free analysis with significant time saving and reduced risk of experimental errors as compared to traditional assays such as RIA and HPLC. Simple sample preparation procedures and automated assays replace elaborate, time-consuming protocols.

The format of Qflex kits gives the flexibility necessary for rapid method development with the reliability essential for routine assays. Other kits are already available for detection of drug residues, such as chloramphenicol, sulfonamides, ractopamine, streptomycin, sulfamethazine and sulfadiazine, and determination of vitamin content.
