Nitroimidazoles Residue Testing Service

Nitroimidazoles residues in foods of animal origin may affect consumer health. Creative Proteomics provides a platform for the analysis of nitroimidazoles residues, and can customize different detection schemes for you according to different detection purposes.

Nitroimidazoles are a class of drugs with 5-nitroimidazole ring structure. Nitroimidazoles have antiprotozoal and antibacterial activities, and they also have strong anti-anaerobic effects and growth-promoting effects.

Wrong application leads to drug residues. Such drugs and some of their metabolites have carcinogenic, teratogenic, mutagenic and genetic toxicity to mammals. Therefore, they are listed as illegal drugs in many countries. In the European Union, ronidazole (RNZ), dimenidazole (DMZ) and metronidazole (MNZ) were banned for use in food animals in 1993, 1995 and 1998, respectively. In 2002, the FDA announced that DMZ and other nitroimidazole drugs are prohibited from being detected in foods of animal origin. China stipulates that MNZ, DMZ and their salts, esters and preparations are not allowed to be used in all food animal feeding processes for the purpose of promoting animal growth.

In order to protect the health of consumers and comply with food import and export inspections, it is necessary to accurately detect whether food samples or feed contain nitroimidazole or detect residues. Creative Proteomics has developed rapid detection technologies suitable for nitroimidazoles residue testing service 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.
