Zeranol ELISA

Zeranol (a-zearalanol) is a non-steroidal estrogenic growth promoter, used to increase weight gain and feed conversion in animals. Zeranol is a semi-synthetic product derived from the naturally occurring mycotoxin zeralenone.  Its administration has been banned within the EU (council directive 96/22/EEC), although its use is still widely permitted in other countries, including the USA.

The Randox Food Diagnostics Zeranol ELISA test kit offers excellent cross reactivity screening zearalone derivative growth promoter residues in meat. Applicable sample types include tissue and urine.
