RIDASCREEN® Chloramphenicol

Art. No.: R1511

Intended use

RIDASCREEN® Chloramphenicol is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of chloramphenicol in milk, milk powder and dairy products, honey and royal jelly, meat, fish, shrimp, eggs, urine (also chloramphenicol glucuronide), plasma/serum and feed.

General Information

Chloramphenicol is a broad spectrum antibiotic, which is frequently employed in animal production for its excellent antibacterial and pharmacokinetic properties. However, in humans it leads to hematotoxic side effects, in particular chloramphenicol-induced aplastic anaemia for which a dosage-effect relationship has not yet been established. This has led to a prohibition of chloramphenicol for the treatment of animals used for food production. For test systems, a minimum required performance limit of 300 ng/kg (ppt) was established.


  • Improved sensitivity and recovery.
  • Less pipetting through functionalized microtiter plate.
  • Only 45 minutes incubation time.
