Colistin, also known as polymyxin E, is a cationic lipopeptide antibiotic isolated from Bacillus polymyxa subsp. colistinus. Colistin is effective against most Gram-negative bacilli. Food of animal origin is tested for colistin residues because of the possible risks for human health. Its use is restricted in the EU and Japan.

MaxSignal Colistin ELISA Test Kit is manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008 (ISO CI#: SARA-2009-CA-0114-01-B).
