Neogen’s rapid test for beta-lactam antibiotics (e.g., penicillin, ampicillin, amoxicillin, cefapirin, cloxacillin and certiofur) can screen raw, commingled milk samples for each of the antibiotic’s maximum residue levels.

Neogen offers a full suite of testing products for beta-lactam antibiotic testing in milk to assure supplies are safe for human consumption.

BetaStar® tests are receptor-based lateral flow assays for the detection of beta-lactam (e.g., penicillin, ampicillin, amoxicillin, cefapirin, and ceftiofur) residues in milk in only 5 minutes. The beta-lactam group is responsible for approximately 95% of all milk antibiotic contamination.

Penzyme® is an enzymatic colorimetric assay for rapid determination of beta-lactam antibiotics extensively used in the prevention and treatment of dairy cattle diseases, particularly mastitis.
