Streptomycin ELISA Kit

Full Name: Streptomycin ELISA Kit
Sample Type: Food
Sensitivity: 1.0 ng/ml


Streptomycin is used to treat many bacterial infections for example; tuberculosis, brucellosis, mycobacterium avium complex, tularemia, burkholderia infection, endocarditis and plague. This antibiotic is used in combination therapy. It may be given by injection into a vein or muscle, or orally. Inhaled use is also possible. Inhaled treatment may be done using nebulized formulations, which are more effective than dry powder preparation. The dose for children ranges from 10 to 20 mg/kg a day for several days to weeks. The usual adult dose is 100-125 mg/day divided twice daily, as 50-100 mg every six hours or 250-500 mg every four hours.

Streptomycin is known to be naturally produced from the actinobacterium Streptomyces griseus and it is also activity is directed against tubercle bacillus and gram-negative bacteria. A number of common side effects include fever, rash, vomiting, heading spinning and numbness of the face. Due to its many side effects, it is rarely used for human treatment, however, it has a vital application in the veterinary area. For example, following the treatment of mastitis in breeding animals, this was found to cause elevated streptomycin in milk, muscle, liver and kidney. Another relatively new application for antibiotic streptomycin is described as Plantomycin (treatment of fruit tree which are known as fire blight).


Streptomycin ELISA kit is a procedure designed for determining quantitative amounts of streptomycin in food. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.0 ng/ml.


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: Coated with anti mouse antibody.
  • Streptomycin Standards 1-6: Concentration 0, 2, 5, 20, 50, 200 ng/ml.

The minimum detection sensitivity level of streptomycin using current streptomycin ELISA kit was 1.0 ng/ml. The standard range for this assay is 2.0 – 200.0 ng/ml.


– Sensitivity: 1.0 ng/ml (based on standard curve)
– Intra-Assay Precision: 6%
– Specificity (Cross Reactivity): Relative to streptomycin (=100%): Dihydrostreptomycin (70%), Gentamycin, Neomycin (< 0.001%).
– Recovery: Milk (120%), Honey (100%), Liver (95%), Meat (90%), Whole egg (85%), Shrimps (70%).

Your secretory IgA ELISA gave good results and I was also really impressed with how quickly we received it.

L. Johnston
PhD Student / University of Glasgow

It is refreshing to know that you have a technical team that is very knowledgeable. I have already recommended your company to other researchers in our department.

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA assay performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

J. Thomas
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.
