When food producing animals are treated with antibiotics, hormones or anabolics, drug residues remain in the animal’s meat and milk. These residues may bear health risks for consumers.
“Residues are the remains of substances which are intentionally used during the production of foods.” (Source: BFR) These include veterinary drugs and pesticides. In order to protect consumers, maximum residue limits (MRLs) and monitoring programs have been established in many countries.
Our product portfolio includes various test systems, such as enzyme immunoassays (ELISAs), microbial inhibition tests and immunoaffinity columns for the detection of hormones, anabolics, antibiotics and other drug residues in different matrices.
