β-Lactam Antibiotics Residue Testing Service

Improper use of β-lactam antibiotics or non-compliance with the requirements of the rest period may result in excessive residue of these antibiotics in animal food and harm to human health. Creative Proteomics provides a platform for the analysis of β-lactam antibiotic residues, and can customize different detection schemes according to different detection purposes.

The -lactam antibiotics are a class of drugs containing the basic structure of the -lactam ring. These antibiotics have strong bactericidal activity, low toxicity and wide indications, and are widely used in veterinary clinic to prevent and treat animal diseases. They can be used to treat and prevent urinary, gastrointestinal and respiratory infections in animals caused by Staphylococcus, Pneumococcus, Streptococcus, Escherichia coli, Haemophilus and Salmonella.

Long-term abuse or unreasonable use of drugs is likely to cause drug residues in animals, which may trigger allergic reactions and the production of drug-resistant bacteria in humans. Drug-resistant strains not only have adverse effects on the environment, but may also have an impact on human treatment and rehabilitation. Therefore, it is necessary to conduct β-lactam antibiotic residue testing on food to ensure food safety and consumer health.

The European Union, the United States, Japan, China, and the International Codex Alimentarius Commission have all set maximum residue limits for β-lactam antibiotic residues in animal-derived foods, and strictly control the application of β-lactam antibiotics in animal husbandry.

In order to protect the health of consumers and comply with food import and export inspections, it is necessary to accurately detect whether the food contains β-lactam antibiotic residues. Creative Proteomics has developed a rapid detection platform suitable for the analysis of lactam antibiotic residues for manufacturers, enterprises, and government organizations. We strictly abide by the quality assurance/quality control plans and regulatory requirements of each country and region to provide you with support. Including but not limited to the following standards and methods: ISO, FDA, AOAC, EU regulations.

β-Lactam Antibiotics Residue Testing Service in Creative Proteomics

Based on our rich experience, Creative Proteomics provides you with a professional platform to analyze β-lactam antibiotics. We can provide the following β-lactam antibiotics, including but not limited to:

Food β-Lactam Antibiotics Residue Testing Platform

Sample preparation method:

  • QuEChERS (Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged, and Safe)
  • Liquid-liquid extraction
  • Solid-phase extraction
  • Matric assisted solid phase dispersion extraction

Sample detection technology:

  • Enzyme linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA)
  • High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC): The spectra of compounds containing β-lactam ring absorb at 250~270 nm. Spectral detection requires a derivatization reaction to improve the specificity of spectral absorption.
  • Liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry (LC–MS/MS): Electrospray positive ion (ESI+) mode ionization. Multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) mode MS determination.

Acceptable Samples: All foods and food products.

Turnaround Time: 7-10 working days.

At Creative Proteomics, our analytical scientists are experienced in β-lactam antibiotics residue testing. After communicating with you about the testing scheme, we will implement it within a quick turnaround time and provide you with an analysis report. If you have any questions or specific needs, do not hesitate to contact us.
