Bioo Scientific Improves Sensitivity and Reliability of Tetracycline Detection with Ready-to-use Standards

September 26, 2014

Bioo Scientific’s newest MaxSignal® Tetracycline ELISA Kit offers the best sensitivity available for the detection of tetracycline residues in meat, honey and other food samples. The new kit also features ready-to-use standards that do not need to be resuspended or diluted, further simplifying tetracycline screening of multiple samples and increasing the reproducibility of the assay. Additionally, robust extraction protocols have eliminated the need for immunoaffinity columns during the sample preparation.

With detection limits of 3 ppb for honey and 1.5 ppb for meat, the MaxSignal Tetracycline ELISA Test Kit offers more sensitive quantitation of tetracycline than any other competing ELISA. This increased sensitivity makes the kit ideal for customers with stringent standards for ensuring that their products are free of tetracycline contamination. In addition, the MaxSignal® Oxytetracycline ELISA Kit, the MaxSignal® Chlortetracycline ELISA Kit and the MaxSignal® Doxycycline ELISA Kit were launched to facilitate the screening of specific tetracycline antibiotic in a variety of food samples.

These kits also incorporate a proprietary extraction protocol for meat that does not require columns for clean-up.  These kits include all of the reagents required for tetracycline screening, including standards and a pre-coated, 96-well breakaway strip plate. These kits are all manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008 (ISO CI#: SARA-2009-CA-0114-A).
