Tetracycline ELISA Kit

INTENDED USE

Tetracycline ELISA kit is a procedure designed for rapid quantitative detection of tetracycline in present in food (such as cheese, milk, milk powder, honey, shrimps and meat). This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 0.024 ng/ml.

BACKGROUND

Tetracycline belong to a wide range of antibiotics which are often used in treating infections of the respiratory tract, intestines and urinary tract, they are also useful in the treatment of chlamydia in particular those patients that have an allergy to macrolides and β-lactams. However, the general usefulness for this chemical has become less popular due to the widespread development of antibiotic resistance in causative organisms. Despite this, tetracycline is a popular choice of treatment for many specific indications, this includes for example brucellosis, syphilis, malaria, cholera, plague and acne.

The following tetracycline ELISA kit can be used as a highly sensitive method to measure rapid quantification of tetracycline contaminations present in meat, shrimps, cheese, honey, milk and milk powder. Tetracycline works by blocking the ability of bacteria to produce proteins, through binding specific prokaryotic ribosomes. In many countries tetracycline is also accepted in food production and therefore consuming tetracycline could lead to potential risks. This has resulted in most countries regulating the maximum amount of tetracycline residues present in foods.

TETRACYCLINE ELISA KIT CONTENT

All reagents supplied need to be stored at 2 °C – 8 °C, unopened reagents will retain reactivity until expiration date. Do not use reagents beyond this date.

  • Microtiter plate consisting of 12 strips with 8 breakable wells: Coated with anti tetracycline antibody.
  • Tetracycline Standards 1-6 (100x): Concentration 0-4 ng/ml.
  • Conjugate (Tetracycline Peroxidase).
  • Substrate Solution (TMB).
  • Stop Solution (0.5 M H2SO4).
  • Extraction and sample dilution buffer (Tris)(10x).
  • Washing Solution (PBS + Tween 20), 10x concentrate.
  • Instruction Manual.

SENSITIVITY

The minimum detection sensitivity level of tetracycline using current tetracycline ELISA kit was 0.024 ng/ml. The standard range for this assay is 0.04 – 4.0 ng/ml.

Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA assay's from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.
