Thiamphenicol is an antibiotic. It is the methyl-sulfonyl analogue of chloramphenicol and has a similar spectrum of activity, but is 2.5 to 5 times as potent. Florfenicol, on the other hand, is a structural analogue of thiamphenicol that also lacks the p-nitro group, and it is more active than thiamphenicol. Neither thiamphenicol nor florfenicol are associated with dose-independent aplastic anemia in humans or any other species, but both are associated with dose-dependent bone marrow suppression.
CDIATM Thiamphenicol & Florfenicol Test Kit is based on competitive indirect colloid gold immunochromatography technology, in which thiamphenicol and florfenicol in sample competes for the colloid gold labeled antibody with thiamphenicol and florfenicol coupling antigen captured on test line. The test result can be observed by naked eye.
