Tetracycline Residue Rapid Test Device is a rapid, one step test for the qualitative detection of 10
Tetracycline(TCs), is a broad spectrum antibiotic which is widely used as bacteriostatic agents in animal husbandry and veteri-nary practice. It may cause side effects on gastrointestinal tract, kidney, liver, hematological system.
PRINCIPLE OF THE TEST
The test utilizes monoclonal gold conjugated antibody as a sig-nal reagent and a Tetracycline protein conjugate as a solid phase capture reagent. As the sample flows through the absor-bent sample pad, the liquid reconstitutes the dried monoclonal gold conjugate. The Tetracycline in the sample will bind to this conjugate antibody and migrate further up the membrane to the test line. If there is no Tetracycline in the sample, the antibody conjugate will bind to the test line giving a negative result, while in the opposite, the antibody conjugate will not bind to the test line giving a positive result.
