Multiplex Screening Assay Detects Antibiotics in Raw Milk

25 June 2018

The intensive use of antibiotics in animal husbandry and public health care has seen an increase in antimicrobial resistant strains of bacteria. In this video, Jeroen Peters, researcher at RIKILT Wageningen University, Netherlands, presents his findings on the detection of antibiotics using the Luminex multiplex screening technology xMAP®, further demonstrating its validation in raw milk analysis. The presented screening assay could support governmental inspection and may help to further reduce the use of antimicrobials in animal production.
