UK - Randox Food Diagnostics has expanded its product range for one of the world’s key antibiotics, tetracyclines.

Throughout the poultry industry, tetracyclines are widely used to control a wide range of bacterial infections. Due to potential toxicity to consumers and concerns over antibiotic resistance, regulatory authorities have set strict maximum residue limits for antimicrobials including tetracyclines.

Leading drug-residue screening company, Randox Food Diagnostics Meat & Seafood Manager, Joanne McKnight said: “With our ground-breaking multiplexing system BioChip Array Technology, tetracyclines features on our popular Antimicrobial Array II so we are pleased to add it to our ELISA range.

“Through an intensive research and development process, Randox Food Diagnostics ELISA products offer outstanding performance in terms of stability and precision. 

"All our products are developed to the highest standards at our UK manufacturing site in Northern Ireland.

"Trusted by some of the world’s largest producers and processors, Randox Food Diagnostics is committed to expanding its product range, meeting the needs of our customers and the wider market.

"Tetracyclines are used on a global basis for poultry and meat production so we expect interest to be strong across all markets,” said Ms McKnight.
