The CDIATM Dexamethasone Colloidal Gold Test Strip (Milk) is a lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of dexamethasone in milk.
Dexamethasone antigen is coated on the test region of the nitrocellulose membrane of the strips, and dexamethasone 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. Dexamethasone in sample will inhibit the binding of the colloid gold labeled antibody and the antigen in the test line.
Dexamethasone is a type of corticosteroid medication. It is used in the treatment of many conditions, including rheumatic problems, a number of skin diseases, severe allergies, asthma, chronic obstructive lung disease, croup, brain swelling, and along with antibiotics in tuberculosis. The long-term use of dexamethasone may result in thrush, bone loss, cataracts, easy bruising, or muscle weakness.
