Project: Immunological methods for the detection of residues of sulfonamides and avermectins in food of animal origin.

project duration
01-JUL-01 – 30-JUN-02
Monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies specific for sulfonamides have already been produced. With these antibodies, an ELISA will be developed for the detection of sulfonamides in food products at their MRL-value. Therefore a convenient extraction procedure need to be optimised for meat products. A receptor assay and camel antibodies will also be evaluated. In order to develop a detection system for avermectins, antibodies will be produced specific for the group of avermectins.
