Growth Promoter Multiple Matrix Array

Growth promoters have been used by the livestock industry for over 30 years to improve an animal’s ability to more efficiently utilize nutrients and produce leaner meat. Anabolic steroids along with ractopamine and other growth promoting steroids must also be monitored very carefully in meat and animal feed.  Insufficient withdrawal periods once an animal has been fed with feeds containing these drugs can lead to contaminated meat entering the food chain. As a result, the use of growth-promoting hormones in livestock production is either prohibited (European Union) or strongly regulated (e.g. USA, Canada and Australia). Compliance with these regulations is monitored by national monitoring programmes.

The Randox Food Diagnostics Growth Promoter Multiple Matrix screening array include β-Agonists (generic), Boldenone, Corticosteroids, Nandrolone, Ractopamine, Stanozolol, Stilbenes, Trenbolone and Zeranol. The sample types for this product include Urine and Tissue.
