Bioo Scientific Enables the Sensitive Detection of a Broad Range of Beta-Lactam Antibiotics in Food.

Austin, TX, August 27, 2015 --( Bioo Scientific's MaxSignal[R] Beta-Lactam ELISA Test Kit has been validated for the screening of a wide range of beta-lactam antibiotics including ampicillin, penicillin G, amoxicillin, azlocillin, piperacillin, nafcillin, cloxacillin, oxacillin, cefoperazone, ceftiofur and other beta-lactams in a number of food matrices.

With detection limits as low as 0.8 ppb, this kit can be used to accurately detect even low levels of beta-lactams in milk, meat, tissue, fish, honey, urine, and plasma at or below their maximum residue limits. The sample prep protocols incorporated into the MaxSignal Beta-Lactam ELISA Test Kit are inexpensive and fast, and offer high recovery rates.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, 80 percent of all antibiotics used in the US are used in animal agriculture. Consumers are showing their growing unease about this use of antibiotics in food-producing animals, fueling sales of organic products. The MaxSignal Beta-Lactam ELISA Test Kit was developed to ease these concerns and assure that food is free of beta-lactam antibiotic residues.

The MaxSignal Beta-Lactam ELISA Test Kit is manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008 (ISO CI#: SARA-2009-CA-0114-A).
