Beta-Agonist ELISA

Beta-agonists have chemical structures, similar to the naturally occurring catecholamines, adrenaline and noradrenaline. They were originally produced for the treatment of respiratory diseases such as asthma and can facilitate the use of fats rather than glucose as a fuel source. Therefore, meat production is increased while fat deposition is inhibited. This improves the meat:fat ratio of animals and leads to the production of higher quality meat at lower cost.  There is a risk that residues of beta-agonists may be present in meat products, which may be harmful to the consumer.  The use of beta-agonists as growth promoters has been banned in most countries.  Consequently, it is important that abuse of these compounds is monitored.

The Randox Food Diagnostics Beta-Agonist ELISA test kit rapidly detects 12 beta-agonist compounds within tissue, hair, feather and urine samples.
