Nitrofurans, which are effective against a wide range of bacteria, include furazolidone, furaltadone, furantoin, furacilin and related compounds. The food and drug administration has prohibited all uses of nitrofuran drugs in food-producing animals because they pose a public health risk. Evidence indicates that the drugs may induce carcinogenic residues in animal tissues. Therefore, the detection of veterinary drug residues such as nitrofurans in honey is of great concern for the apiculture.
Furaltadone Metabolite & Furazolidone Metabolite Rapid Test Kit is a lateral flow assay that determines for the presence of furaltadone metabolite and furazolidone metabolite residues in honey. This test is designed for on-site rapid detection in various enterprises, testing institutions and supervision departments.
Furaltadone Metabolite: 0.4-0.5ppb
Furazolidone Metabolite: 0.3-0.5ppb
