Growth Promoter Multiple Matrix Screen Array - PT. RAFA

 

Growth Promoter Multiple Matrix Screen Array

 Growth-promoting hormones have been used by the livestock industry for over 30 years to improve an animal's ability to more efficiently utilize nutrients and produce leaner, more affordable meat. Concerns over the use of hormones in food producing animals first arose during the late 1970s and early 1980s, when a number of incidents linked hormone residues in meat with various medical conditions. As a result, the use of growth-promoting hormones in livestock production is either prohibited (European Union) or strongly regulated (e.g. USA, Canada and Australia). Compliance with these regulations is monitored by national monitoring programmes.

Randox Food Diagnostics also supply a Ractopamine Only kit (EV3920) with an exceptional LOD of 0.1ppb for beef tissue. 

  Detection of 38 growth promoter compounds   405 tests over 9 analytes in 2.5 hrs   Available for urine, tissue and feed
