E-READER – Novel system for antibiotics detection in food

E-READER provides a simple and minimum time-consuming method for detection of antibiotics in foods. Combined with Zeulab microbial tests (Eclipse or Explorer) it provides an EU MRL compliant multi-residues analysis, detecting more than 30 substances in a single assay. The E-READER incubates the assay at 65ºC, controls assay time and automatically reads the results. E-READER allows for the best test performance and avoids interpretation mistakes.

E-READER can be used with milk and meat samples. After easy (meat) or no (milk) sample preparation, all that needs to be done is to add the sample and check the results 3 hours later. The assay is performed and ended automatically. Results are displayed numerically on the screen and saved in an internal memory to assure traceability.

ECLIPSE FARM 3G – Qualitative detection of antibiotic residues in cow, sheep, goat and buffalo milk

Milk is tested at the farm, dairy,  or in a laboratory for antibiotic residues resulting from treatment of animals having bacterial infections of the udder.  These pose a hazard to consumers, maybe causing allergic reactions and the development of bacterial resistance. They also have a negative effect on starter cultures of bacteria used for fermentation of milk products, causing financial losses in the dairy industry.

The ECLIPSE Farm 3G kit is a broad-range screening test for qualitative detection of antibiotics in milk. Based on the inhibition of microbial growth, the method has been validated following the ISO 13969:2003(E). Supplied in a single tubes format, each tube contains agar medium spread with Geobacillus stearothermophilus. When incubated at 65ºC, spores germinate and cell growth produces acid, changing the agar pH. pH variations changes of the agar colour from purple to yellowish. If milk samples contain inhibitors at concentrations higher than the detection limit, microorganisms will not grow and no colour change will be observed.

Format: Individual tests in tubes.

Zeulab PROTEON EXPRESS Rapid Test Kits

Food allergies can be life threatening. For people who have a food allergy the only way to manage the allergy is to avoid the food allergen.

For this reason, there are laws in place, for example mandatory labeling requirements to help people who have a food allergy avoid food allergens.

All operators in the food chain (industry, distribution, retail and the restaurant sector) must declare these allergen ingredients in foods.

Manufacturers, Industry and Food Service providers are required to implement an effective allergen management plan, train staff in food allergen risks, management and communication and manage the unintentional presence of food allergens.

The PROTEON EXPRESS allergen testing kits are rapid tests for the detection of the unintentional or accidental presence of allergens in food and on working surfaces. The kits offer qualitative results (positive/negative) in just a few minutes and do not require qualified staff or special laboratory equipment

Simple and rapid, they can be performed on any surface. Simple to use they are an ideal tool for checking suppliers, for the verification of allergen management, Good Manufacturing Practices, cross contamination controls, industrial production lines, retail food workshops and restaurant kitchens.

Zeulab PROTEON ELISA Quantitative Test Kits

If allergens in food and on working surfaces are detected by the Proteon Express rapid tests, the PROTEON ELISA system provide a method for quantitative determination of these allergens. The technical features of these kits make them a good laboratory tool for checking suppliers’ deliveries, for the validation of Good Manufacturing Practices or allergen management and for checking for cross contact in industrial process lines.

After sample extraction or swab and with conjugate ready to use, assay time is 30 or 90 minutes depending on the allergen. Measurement is photometric at 450nm.
