The Antibiotic Test Kit

The UK consumer continues to demand higher standards for dairy products.

What is the Antibiotic Test Kit?
It is a test that detects beta lactam antibiotics in a milk sample.
It is the fastest on the market, taking just 5 minutes.
It is easy to use and simple to understand, giving you results instantly, that can be kept permanently.
It is a very sensitive test, detecting the majority of Beta lactam antibiotics at or below the EU maximum residue level (*MRL).

2. Mix and incubate the vial in the pre-heated incubator for three minutes.
