The CDIATM Bromobuterol Colloidal Gold Test Cassette (Urine) is a lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of bromobuterol in animal urine.
Bromobuterol antigen is coated on the test region of the nitrocellulose membrane of the strips, and bromobuterol antibody is labeled with colloid gold. During a test, the colloid gold labeled antibody coated in the strip move forward along the membrane, and a red line will show up when the antibody gathers with the antigen in the test line; if bromobuterol in the sample is over the detection limit, line T is blank; on the other wise, if bromobuterol in the sample is less than the detection limit, line T is red.
Among the β-agonist drugs illegally used as repartitioning agents in food producing animals, clenbuterol (CBL) and bromobuterol (BBL) are frequently recovered during routine control by national authorities. Although banned through the EU for mass therapy as bronchodilators, they are still used to improve carcass characteristics and productivity at dosage levels & 10-fold than the therapeutic dose.
