NOVA Sensor – Antibiotics Residue Rapid test line
Novazym is a Poland-based biotechnology company specialized in food and animal diagnostic product research & development. We provide rapid tests, ELISA kit, recombinant protein, monoclonal antibody and many other reagent for laboratory use. Antibiotic residues in food of animal origin such as milk, meat, eggs represent a potential health risk to the consumer. Therefore, our offer a broad portfolio of different test systems for the analysis of antibiotic residues in food. Antibiotics are naturally formed metabolites derived from fungi or bacteria. Substances that do not occur in nature and are produced by modern biotechnology and chemical synthesis are called antibiotics as well. Antibiotics are able to kill microorganisms or inhibit their growth. In human and veterinary medicine, antibiotics are therefore used as drugs for the treatment of bacterial diseases.
Due to the potentially carcinogenic and toxic properties of antibiotic residues and their allergic potential, the consumption of contaminated food establishes a direct risk for public health. Furthermore, the inappropriate use of antibiotics in animal husbandry and food production promotes the multi-drug resistance of pathogen bacteria for antibiotics used in human medicine. Antibiotic residues bear a risk for the production process safety and consequently also an economic risk, as they inhibit biotechnological production processes involving microorganisms such as starter cultures in the dairy industry.
Novazym offers a wide range of rapid test for screening antibiotic drug residue in food:
