The MaxSignal® Cimaterol ELISA Test Kit is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of cimaterol in a variety of sample types.
Cimaterol can improve the meat/fat ratio in fattened animals and accelerate livestock growth. It also has a relaxing effect on non-striated musculature and can be used as antiasthmatic and tocolytic agents in human beings. Therefore, excess cimaterol residues in food products may lead to health risks for consumers. This has led to a prohibition of cimaterol use in food production. The amount of cimaterol residue can be determined by methods such as HPLC or GC-MS. However, these traditional methods usually require very expensive preparation procedures. Alternatively, enzyme immunoassay (ELISA) can be used as a screening system, which is simple, rapid, sensitive and cost-effective compared with traditional methods.
This kit is manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008.
