Bioo Scientific, a world leader in food safety testing, today announced the availability of its MaxSignal® Beta-Lactam ELISA Test Kit. This kit is a competitive enzyme immunoassay that quantitatively detects a broad range of beta-lactam antibiotics including ampicillin, penicillin G, amoxicillin, cloxacillin, oxacillin and cephalosporins (i.e. cefoperazone, ceftiofur, etc) in milk, meat, tissue, fish, urine and plasma samples.
According to Dr Marianna Goldrick, Senior Scientist at Bioo Scientific, “Bioo Scientific continues to expand its portfolio of innovative products, which allows the food industry to ensure that its products meet global safety standards. The MaxSignal® Beta-Lactam ELISA Test Kit that we launched today detects a broader range of antibiotics than other beta-lactam ELISAs. This kit allows food industry professionals to ensure the safety of their products without increasing their expense or the time required to test for additional antibiotic contaminants.”
With a detection limit of 0.4 ppb for most sample types, the MaxSignal® Beta Lactam ELISA Test Kit allows for the accurate detection of beta-lactams at or below their maximum residue limits. The sample prep protocols are inexpensive and fast, ranging from 10 minutes - 1 hour depending upon sample type, and offer a recovery rate of >80%. The kit includes all required reagents including standards plus a pre-coated, 96-well microtitre breakaway strip plate.
