There is a greater awareness of potential risks surrounding the use of veterinary drugs in the feed as improper administration of these drugs has threatened global public health.
Veterinary drugs residues have made their way into the food chain and led to public health epidemics such as antimicrobial drug resistance, hypersensitivity reactions and carcinogenicity.
Many countries have enforced legislations to restrict the usage of these substances in their feed with hopes it gradually decreases veterinary drug residue levels in animal by-products (meat, milk, eggs and honey).
However, the complex nature of veterinary drugs with actives from different chemical classes (i.e.: antibiotics, antiparasitics, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) as well as the ability to trace small quantities in food can be a challenging task for labs.
Methods so Selective, You Have Confidence, Nothing Goes Under the Radar
SCIEX veterinary drug residue testing solutions are complete with single substance and multiclass testing to help your laboratory better identify and quantify very low levels of antibiotics and hormone residues in an abundance of food samples today and into the future.
Labs today need rapid and selective screening methods, which not only detect varieties of veterinary drug residues, but also offer a broad range of levels in food and animals. At SCIEX, we continuously innovate to develop cutting edge high-resolution and accurate mass spectrometry technology to help you analyze low levels of analytes within complex matrices.
