The CDIATM Chloramphenicol Immunofluorescence Test Strip (Meat) is designed for qualitative determination of chloramphenicol in fish, shrimp, chicken, pig and other animals.
The Test is a competitive binding immunoassay in which chloramphenicol in a sample compete with immobilized chloramphenicol conjugate for limited labeled antibody binding sites. When a sufficient amount of specimen is applied to the sample pad of the test device, the specimen migrates through the test device by capillary action. The chloramphenicol in the sample combines with the antibody labeled with the fluorescent microspheres, and inhibits the binding of the antibody and chloramphenicol-BSA on the NC membrane test line (T line), thus resulting in changes in the fluorescence intensity of the test line. Using the fluorescence reader, We can get the final test result.
Chloramphenicol is an antibiotic useful for the treatment of a number of bacterial infections.Common side effects include bone marrow suppression, nausea, and diarrhea. The bone marrow suppression may result in death. To reduce the risk of side effects treatment duration should be as short as possible. People with liver or kidney problems may need lower doses. In young children a condition known as gray baby syndrome may occur which results in a swollen stomach and low blood pressure. This kit is intended used in quantitative detection of choramphenicol content in fish, shrimp, chicken, pig and other animals.
