Multi-analyte Beta Lactam and Cephalosporin milk testing

Beta-lactams are one of the most frequently used families of antibiotics in food producing animals. For consumer protection, maximum residue limits (MRLs) have been set to control the amount of beta-lactams (both penicillin’s and cephalosporins) residues present in food. Using patented biochip array technology Randox Food Diagnostics can now offer a unique biochip array platform to detect 16 of these residues in milk.
