The MaxSignal® Terbutaline ELISA Test Kit is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of Terbutaline and other related ß-agonists in a variety of sample types.

Terbutaline is a ß-agonist illegally used in livestock production. It can improve the meat/fat ratio in fattened animals and accelerate livestock growth. It is also used as a fast-acting bronchodilator (often used as a short-term asthma treatment) and as a tocolytic to delay premature labor. Therefore, excess terbutaline residues in livestock products may lead to health risks for consumers. This has led to a prohibition of terbutaline use in food production by most countries. The amount of terbutaline 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.
