Product Code
Kit Principle
Test Type



Antibiotic residues in meat can pose certain hazards to human health such as sensitivity to antibiotics, allergic reactions, mutation in cells, imbalance of intestinal micro biota and bacterial resistance to antibiotics. The presence of residues of antibiotics in poultry meat and meat products beyond maximum permissible limits is a matter of serious concern. Heat treatments can reduce the risk of some sulfonamides, tetracyclines, and fluoroquinolones but do not guarantee the complete elimination or degradation of these antibiotic residues present in broiler meat.

This Meat BTSCef QuaTest is a 4in1 rapid test kit that utilizes the high affinity of monoclonal antibody and receptor protein against beta-lactams, tetracycline and sulfonamide common structure, which can identify a broad spectrum of drug residues. The detection limit of the kit can meet both European and USA MRLs when using properly.
