The detection of veterinary drug residues such as beta-lactam antibiotics, tetracyclines, streptomycin and chloramphenicol in milk is of great concern for the dairy industry because of the potential interfering and adverse effects of antibiotic residues frequently found in milk.
Since January 2011, the Russian Dairy Authority has consolidated the requirements for drug residue screening in milk. According to the Russian Federal Law 163 (2010), dairy producers should test for all the above antibiotics on a routine basis. This regulation applies also to milk imported into Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, as a new Customs Union has been established between the 3 countries.
In order to answer these specific requirements, Unisensor has developed a multiplex dipstick assay for the rapid and simultaneous detection of beta-lactam antibiotics, tetracyclines, streptomycin and chloramphenicol in milk.
This unique test does not require any sample preparation and gives a clear result in 10 minutes, by visual observation or using the ReadSensor 2.
