Trimethoprim is an example of a commonly used antibiotic in veterinary medicine. This particular antibiotic is not only effective against general, broad-spectrum infections of many types, but it's also commonly used to treat certain parasite conditions. Due to the potential hazard to humans, strict MRLs have been set in EU, USA and other countries. This product utilizes the high affinity of monoclonal antibody against trimethoprim which can identify trimethoprim specificly. The detection limit of the Meat Trimethoprim Rapid Test Kit can meet both European and USA MRLs when using properly.
