An antibiotic, a type of antimicrobial substance, is the most important type of antibacterial agent for fighting bacterial infections. And the antibiotic is widely used in our life, such as medical treatment, animal husbandry and food additives.
However, with the misuse of antibiotics, antibiotic resistance is a serious public health issue. Continuous exposure to antibiotics in the environment can lead to the development of antibiotic resistance in microorganisms, and infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria can be difficult, or sometimes impossible to cure. It has been estimated that at least two million people became ill, and 23,000 died every year as a consequence of antibiotic-resistant infection in the United States.
There is an increasing concern about the use of antibiotic drugs in animal agriculture over the widespread. Drug residues can accumulate in human bodies through the food chain, causing various side effects. Restaurants and food companies pledge to reduce or eliminate meat that comes from animals treated with antibiotics, but the purchase of antibiotics for use on animal husbandry has been increasing every year. Therefore, it’s increasingly important to analysis antibiotics in food products.
