Sulfadimethoxine (trade name Di-Methox, Albon) is a sulfonamide antibiotic. Albon is produced by Pfizer Animal Health and is available as a oral suspension, tablet or bolus. It is used to treat many infections including treatment of respiratory, urinary tract, enteric, and soft tissue infections. It is most frequently used in veterinary medicine. Sulfadimethoxine inhibits bacterial synthesis of folic acid (pteroylglutamic acid) from para-aminobenzoic acid. It is also commonly used for the treatment of coccidiosis in many species.
Principle Of The Test
CD Sulfadimethoxine Rapid Test is based on competitive lateral flow immunochromatographic assay. The Sulfadimethoxine conjugate in the test zone will capture the immuno-gold (colloid gold- Sulfadimethoxine antibody conjugate), when there is very little dissociative Sulfadimethoxine in the samples. A visible red test band indicates a negative result when the control line (C zone) shows that the card is valid. The test band (T zone) will be not visible if Sulfadimethoxine is present in concentration of 10 ppb and above which explains a positive result.
