Sensitive Detection of Salbutamol Residues
MaxSignal® Salbutamol ELISA Kit is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of salbutamol in a variety of sample types.
Salbutamol 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 agent in human beings. Therefore, excess salbutamol residues in food 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.
