A competitive enzyme immunoassay for screening and quantitative analysis of dapsone in various matrices.
Dapsone is an antibiotic used in animals to prevent and treat diseases such as streptococcal mastitis and coccidiosis of cattle. Dapsone is listed in table 2 of Regulation (EC) no. 37/2010. Veterinary medicinal products in this table are banned for use in/treatment of food-producing animals. A technical guide has been published by the Community Reference Laboratories in which a recommended concentration of 5 ppb has been published for dapsone in muscle, meat and milk.
