The detection of illegal veterinary drugs, toxins and possible chemical contaminants is becoming increasingly important to ensure food safety. For food manufactures and exporters, it is now mandatory to ensure their produce and products are free from prohibited substances. However, ELISA applications as a screening tool has resulted, in false positives or false negatives.
LIR Biotech conducted a two day training and presentation at Malaysia's MKAV (National Veterinary Public Health Laboratory). We worked with the laboratory staffs on principles of ELISA, related technical issues (eg. CC-alpha, CC-beta, pit-falls, limitations etc.) and operational techniques. Chicken meat and different compounded feed were processed and tested for nitrofuran. Results were discussed and potential issues raised in response to the information provided.
We offer an extensive range of ELISA kits for detection of veterinary drugs, banned substances, mycotoxins, contaminants. We provide turnkey solution by integrating equipment hardwards, detection platforms and training for ELISA based residue testing. Visit the Immuno-Assays Diagnostic page for general information.
