Improved milk antibiotic test kit

IDEXX Laboratories has an improved version of its milk residue screening test kit for the US and Canadian markets. The SNAP Tetracycline Test Kit has a five-minute incubation period, with results available four minutes after a milk sample is applied. Test sensitivity parameters have been refined to detect antibiotic residues in line with US Food and Drug Administration tolerance levels, which IDEXX says will reduce the risk of dumping safe milk. General manager of IDEXX Dairy Tove Rasmussen comments: "We are pleased to offer this enhanced method of screening for tetracycline drug residues while delivering the same accuracy and ease of use as all our SNAP dairy testing products."
