Chloramphenicol is an antibiotic that possesses outstanding antibacterial properties and is frequently used in the production of meat, milk and eggs. It is also used in many applications in human and veterinary medicine for example eye ointment in order to treat conjunctivitis, oral or injected into a vein to treat plague, meningitis, typhoid fever and cholera. Due to its adverse effects it has been found to cause in humans, the use of chloramphenicol as an antibiotic is restricted and in a number of situations is prohibited. There is also evidence to indicate that in humans it can lead to haematotoxic side effects such as induced aplastic anemia. Two of the main methods which have been used for analysis are gas chromatography and radioimmunoassay. This ELISA assay offer many advantages over the conventional methods in that no radioactive material is required, the procedure is shorter and provides sensitivity that is better than chromatographic and comparable to radioimmunoassay.
Chloramphenicol ELISA kit is intended for measuring quantitative amounts of chloramphenicol present in food and urine samples. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 0.03 ng/ml.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of chloramphenicol using this chloramphenicol ELISA kit was 0.03 ng/ml. The standard assay range for this kit is 0.05 – 50.0 ng/ml.
