Sulfonamides Test Kit is an assay for the rapid detection of sulfonamides antibiotics in raw, commingled cow milk at or below established Maximum Residue Levels (MRL).
Sulfonamides are widely used as feed additives, mainly for fattening of calves and pigs. Sulfonamides are also used in veterinary medicine for the treatment of intestinal infections, mastitis, and other diseases. Sulfonamide residues may therefore occur in food of animal origin such as fish and shrimp. According to the US FDA and EU-Law, the maximum residue limit for all substances of the sulfonamide-group are 100 ppb in muscle, fat, liver, and kidney, and 100 ppb in milk.
