Bioo Scientific’s ractopamine services include extraction methods optimized for high recovery rates from a wide variety of sample types, and have reportable detection limits as low as 0.2 ppb for pork samples. Test results are available in less than one week from receipt of samples.
In addition to testing services, Bioo Scientific also offers an extensive menu of kits for quantitative assessment of ractopamine in food and feed samples for laboratories that wish to perform rapid screening for ractopamine in-house.
