Nitrofurans are a class of drugs typically used as antibiotics or antimicrobials. Nitrofurans share a nitrofuran ring which is coupled to a side-chain via an azomethine bond. The sidechains differ for the various drugs, being 3-amino-2-oxazolidinone (AOZ) for furazolidone, 3-amino5-methylmorpholino-2-oxazolidinone (AMOZ) for furaltadone, 1-aminohydantoin (AHD) for nitrofurantoin, semicarbazide (SEM) for nitrofurazone, and 3,5-dinitrosalicylic acid hydrazide (DNSH) for nifursol. Nitrofurans have short half-lives in animals and therefore they do not occur generally as residues in foods of animal origin. Reactive metabolites are formed that are able to bind covalently to tissue macromolecules, such as proteins and DNA. When animal tissues are consumed as food, the side chains may be released from the metabolites, namely AOZ, AMOZ, AHD, SEM and DNSH.
Currently, they are banned in animal production in EU, China and USA. Therefore, its necessary to check nitrofuran metabolites in food samples.
We offer rapid test kits for detection of Nitrofurans Metabolite AOZ/AMOZ/AHD/SEM 4-in-1 in shrimp, meat, honey & milk samples.
- fast, accurate and reliable
- Ready to use kits for shrimp sample
- No incubation required, total detection in 10min
- Highly specific to AOZ/AMOZ/AHD/SEM
Antibiotics are essential medicines for the treatment of bacterial infections in animals. But residues in meat and poultry beyond permissible limits can pose health hazards to humans such as sensitivity to antibiotics, allergic reactions, mutation in cells, imbalance of intestinal microbiota and bacterial resistance to antibiotics. We offer Rapid test kits for the detection of BTSCef QuaTest 4 in 1, which can identify a broad spectrum of drug residues in meat/poultry.
- Result visible in 10 min
- Detection limit: 10-90 ppb
- Ready-to-use kits
- No organic solvent required
