MaxSignal Chloramphenicol (CAP) ELISA Test Kit

MaxSignal® Chloramphenicol (CAP) ELISA Test Kit is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of chloramphenicol in feed, fish, eggs, honey, meat (beef, chicken and pork), milk, milk powder, serum, shrimp and urine.


Chloramphenicol is a broad spectrum antibiotic which is frequently employed in animal production for its excellent antibacterial and pharmacokinetic properties.


However, in humans it leads to hematotoxic side effects, which has led to prohibition of chloramphenicol in the treatment of animals used for food production.

Previously, chloramphenicol-residues were determined either radioimmunologically or by gas chromatography. Although, enzyme immunoassays (ELISA) show considerable advantages over conventional methods. Radioactive materials are no longer required, and the processing time is considerably less than the gas chromatographic method.
