Sulfamethazine ELISA Test Kit is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of sulfamethazine. Sulfonamides are widely used as feed additives, mainly for fattening of calves and pigs. Sulfonamides are also used in veterinary medicine for the treatment of intestinal infections, mastitis, and other diseases. Sulfonamide residues may therefore occur in food of animal origin such as fish and shrimp. According to the US FDA and EU-Law, a maximum residue limit for all substances of the sulfonamide-group of 100 ppb in muscle, fat, liver, kidney, and milk.
Although physical-chemical methods such as high-pressure liquid chromatography are widely used for sulfamethazine detection, their application for routine screening of numerous samples, however, is limited by cost and instrumentation. Alternatively, enzyme immunoassays (ELISA) show considerable advantages over conventional methods. Sulfamethazine ELISA Test Kit enables international and government regulatory agencies, food manufacturers and processors, as well as quality assurance organizations, to detect
Sulfamethoxazole below the maximum residue limit in various sample types in response to customer concerns about food safety.
The method is based on a competitive, two-step colorimetric enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). The target analyte has been coated to the plate wells. During analysis, sample is added along with a primary antibody specific to the target analyte. If the target analyte is present in the sample, it will compete for the antibody, thereby preventing the antibody from binding to the analyte coated to the plate well. A secondary antibody, tagged with a peroxidase enzyme, targets the primary antibody that is complexed to the analyte coated on the plate wells. The resulting color intensity, after addition of TMB substrate, has an inverse relationship to the target analyte concentration in the sample
