Strategies for the Screening of Antibiotic Residue in Eggs: Comparison of the Validation of Classical Microbiological Method with an Immunobiosensor Method

Efficient screening methods are needed to control antibiotic residues in eggs. A microbiological kit (Explorer 2.0 test (Zeu Inmunotech, Spain) and an immunobiosensor kit (Microarray II (AM® II) on the Evidence InvestigatorTM system (Randox, UK) have been evaluated and validated for screening of antibiotic residues in eggs, according to Decision EC/2002/657 (2002) and to the European guideline for the validation of screening methods (Crl 2010).

Biochip Array Technology: Maximising the Screening Capacity of Veterinary Drug Residues in Food

The use of veterinary drug residues in food producing animals is globally restricted and an important topic in food safety. The emergence of problems such as antibiotic resistance has led to growing concerns for public health. high levels of food imports have increased the need for reliable, efficient and user-friendly screening methods.

Biochip array technology allows the simultaneous screening of multiple veterinary drug residues from a single sample. This consolidates testing and reduces the quantity of samples to be assessed by confirmatory analysis. This study reports the applicability of biochip arrays to the multiplex screening of antimicrobials , anthelmintic drugs and growth promoters in food.

Application of Evidence Biochip Arrays to the Multiplex Screening of Residues in Milk

Biochip array technology provides a platform for the simultaneous determination of multiple analytes with a single sample at a single point in time. This multi-analytical approach increases the result output and is advantageous for the rapid and simultaneous screening of multiple residues in milk.

Rapid Simple Preparation and Immunoassays to Facilitate the Generic Screening of Beta-Lactam Antibiotics in Milk

In dairy farming, the use of beta-lactam antibiotics to prevent and treat microbial infections can be a potential source of beta-lactam residues in milk. For consumer protection, tolerance levels or maximum residue limits (MRLs) have been established for these compounds. the availability of analytical tools for the rapid screening of a broad range of these compounds in milk using simple preparation methods is advantageous in test settings to monitor legislation compliance.

This study reports the analytical evaluation of a biochip based Immunoassay and an Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) for the screening of a wide range of beta-lactam antibiotics in milk after simple sample preparation.

Applicability of Biochip-based immunoassays to the detection of pesticides

Pesticides are broadly applied to kill pests and their application to agricultural crops have a negative impact on bees, which can contribute to the loss of bee colonies. The widespread release of pesticides into the environment can also contribute to the occurrence of pesticides
in the food supply. Pesticides are regulated globally by various governmental agencies. The availability of screening methods allowing the detection of pesticides is then beneficial in test settings to monitor their presence to ensure food safety.

This study reports the applicability of biochip-based immunoassays to the detection of acetamiprid/thiacloprid, azoxystrobin, carbaryl, clothianidin, coumaphos, fenpyroximate, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam.

The Use of Biochip Array Technology for Rapid Multimycotoxin Screening

Biochip array kit and analyzer.—Simultaneous semiquantitative screening of mycotoxins in feed was carried out using the Myco 7 biochip array kit (EV4065; Randox Food Diagnostics, Crumlin, United Kingdom).

The kit contains multianalyte biochips, assay diluent, conjugate diluent, multianalyte conjugate, a set of multianalyte calibrators (spanning the range of each assay), multianalyte controls, signal reagent, washing buffer, calibration disc, and barcodes.

The biochips were supplied in carriers (3 × 3 biochips per carrier), and a carrier handling tray was provided with the system that allows the simultaneous handling of six carriers (54 biochips). Data were generated and processed with the semiautomated benchtop biochip analyzer Evidence Investigator (EV3602; Randox Food Diagnostics, Crumlin, United Kingdom).
