Bioo Scientific Launches Kit for Affordable Screening of Enrofloxacin Contamination in Seafood
Austin, TX, March 11, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Bioo Scientific’s newest version of the MaxSignal® Enrofloxacin ELISA Test Kit offers the ability to rapidly screen fish and shrimp samples for enrofloxacin contamination. With a detection limit of 0.1 ppb for seafood samples, the MaxSignal® Enrofloxacin ELISA Test Kit was developed specifically to meet the demanding seafood importation standards of Canada.
Experts worldwide are concerned that low levels of antibiotics, which are used in aquaculture to reduce the occurrence of disease, are becoming increasing common in imported seafood. Long term exposure to antibiotics is a concern and increases the potential for the development of dangerous antibiotic resistance.
The MaxSignal Enrofloxacin ELISA Test Kit is a one-step ELISA that includes a robust extraction protocol offering enrofloxacin and ciprofloxacin recovery rates of 75 - 95%. Along with a high sensitivity rate of 0.05 ppb and a low 0.1 ppb detection limit, this kit was designed to offer a sensitive, affordable and rapid screening solution for seafood.
The MaxSignal Enrofloxacin ELISA Test Kit is manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008 (ISO CI#: SARA-2009-CA-0114-02-A).
