Eclipse 50

Detects more than 50 antibiotics in milk in a single assay with total flexibility in the number of samples.

 

Are you worried about ruining the production of fermented products due to the presence of antibiotics in milk?
Do you need to comply with the maximum residue limits established by the European legislation?

 

HOW DOES IT HELP YOU?

 

Eclipse50 helps to screen more than 50 antibiotics from 8 groups in a one-step assay, thus avoiding technological problems when processing fermented dairy products, as well as to comply with the maximum residue limits in milk established by the European Union. Eclipse50 allows analysing from one single sample to a large number of samples in less than 2.5 hours. Results can be read visually or using a photometer for objective results.

ASSAY PROCEDURE

1. Add sample:

50μL of milk

2. Incubation:

2h 30min at 65ºC

3. Results:

Visual or photometric

TEST PRINCIPLE

ECLIPSE test is based on the growth inhibition of the Geobacillus stearothermophilus bacterium. In a specific culture medium and under suitable conditions, the spores of this bacterium germinate and multiply, acidifying the medium, producing a colour change in the culture medium from blue to yellow. If the milk sample contains an antimicrobial concentration higher than the test detection limit, the bacterial growth is inhibited and therefore the colour change of the medium will not occur.
