Sensitive Detection of Salbutamol Residues
MaxSignal® Salbutamol ELISA Kit is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of salbutamol in feed, meat, liver, kidney, milk and urine.
Salbutamol can improve the meat/fat ratio in fattened animals and accelerate livestock growth. They also have a relaxing effect on non-striated musculature and can be used as antiasthmatic and tocolytic agents in human beings. Therefore, excess salbutamol residues in livestock products may lead to health risks for consumers. This has led to a prohibition of salbutamol use in food production. The amount of salbutamol residues 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.
