Screening laboratory

  • In the laboratory for antibiotic screening, foodstuffs can be screened using microbiological tests for the presence of inhibitory substances (mainly antibiotics and chemotherapeutics).
  • Foods can also be analysed group specifically using immunological, Charm II and receptor tests for the presence of residues of ß-lactam antibiotics, (penicillins and cephalosporines), tetracyclines, sulfonamides, streptomycines, macrolides & lincosamides, quinolones, chlooramphenicol, etc.
  • In addition, commercial screening tests for the detection of antibiotics in milk, honey, meat, or other food products can be validated according to norm 2002/657/EC of the Commission and the CRL guidelines for the validation of screening methods for residues of veterinary drugs.
