Rapid Screening for Zeranol
MaxSignal® Zeranol ELISA Test Kit is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of zeranol in cereals, dried meat, fish, feed, milk, urine and seed. Zeranol (α-Zearalanol) is a non-steroidal estrogen agonist. It is a mycotoxin, derived from fungi in the Fusarium family, and may be found as a contaminant in fungus-infected crops. It is 3-4 fold more potent as an estrogen agonist than the related compounds. Zeranol is approved for use as a growth promoter in livestock, including beef cattle, in the United States. However, its application is not approved for use in the European Union or Canada.
This kit is manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008.
MaxSignal Zeranol ELISA Test Kit has the capacity for 96 determinations or testing of 42 samples in duplicate (assuming 12 wells for standards). Return any unused microwells to the foil bag and reseal them with the desiccant provided in the original package. Store the kit at 2-8°C. The shelf life is 12 months when the kit is properly stored.
