Characteristics of The Test
Erythromycin is a macrolide antibiotic produced by Streptomyces erythreus. It inhibits bacterial protein synthesis by binding to bacterial 50S ribosomal subunits; binding inhibits peptidyl transferase activity and interferes with translocation of amino acids during translation and assembly of proteins. Erythromycin may be bacteriostatic or bactericidal depending on the organism and drug concentration.
CDIATM Erythromycin Test Kit is based on competitive indirect colloid gold immunochromatography technology, in which erythromycin in sample competes for the colloid gold labeled antibody with erythromycin coupling antigen captured on test line. The test result can be observed by naked eye.
