ELISA for the Analysis of Gentamicin Residues in Food
MaxSignal® Gentamicin ELISA Test Kit is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of Gentamicin in a variety of sample types.
Gentamicin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic that is hydrosoluble, polar heat stable and slightly basic. Gentamicin’s antibacterial activity is due to its ability to bind to the 30S subunit of the bacterial ribosome where it inhibits protein synthesis. All of the aminoglycosides are potentially toxic compounds causing significant damage in vestibular and auditory functions in human and animals. Nevertheless, they are used in practice because of their antibacterial and antifungal activities. These compounds have been found to be useful for the treatment of serious infections due to Gram negative microorganisms.
