Rapid CDIATM Streptomycin kits are intended for qualitative detection of Streptomycin in food.
Streptomycin (STR), produced by Streptomyces griseus, is an aminoglycoside antibiotic, which shows activity against aerobic gram – negative bacteria and is widely used in treatment of infectious diseases in farm animals. STR residues reported to be present in meat, liver, kidney, milk and other food commodities. However, for its ototoxicity and nephrotoxicity, the residue in animal-derived food would do much harm to human health. To protect the consumer against healthy risks and avoid food-technological problems, streptomycin is restricted in China, Europe and U.S.
