A competitive enzyme immunoassay for screening and quantitative analysis of triamcinolone in urine.
Triamcinolone acetonide is a synthetic corticosteroid and used as drug because of its anti- inflammation activities. In meat production corticosteroids such as triamcinolone have been misused for fattening purposes. It was found that these compounds have growth promoting properties to improve commercial quality of meat.
The Triamcinolone acetonide ELISA is a competitive enzyme immunoassay based on antibodies directed against triamcinolone acetonide.
