Intended use:

RIDASCREEN® Zeranol is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of zeranol in urine.

General Information:

The oestrogenic anabolic agent zeranol (a-Zearalanol) is derived from the mycotoxin zearalenone. It is used to increase the average daily live-weight gain in ruminants and to improve the food conversion efficiency. However, this compound has not been authorized as fattening adjuvant in the EU.

The synthetic compound zeranol possesses about three times the estrogenic activity of zearalenone. Besides its anabolic effects, zeranol causes the clinical signs of hyperestrogenism, particularly reduced fertility and  disorders in development. It is thus not impossible that zeranol residues in edible tissues, after use in illegal practice, may lead to a risk for consumers.
