Product info

EuroProxima Lincomycin

Art. No.: 5151LIN

Intended use

A competitive enzyme immunoassay for screening and quantitative analysis of lincomycin in various matrices.

General Information

Lincomycin is a narrow spectrum antibiotic derived from Streptomyces lincolnensis. It belongs to the lincosamide group which also includes pirlimycin and clindamycin. The EU has set maximum residue limits (MRLs) for lincomycin in different foods of animal origin: 50 ╬╝g/kg (ppb) for fat/eggs, 100 ╬╝g/kg for muscle, 150 ╬╝g/kg for milk, 500 ╬╝g/kg for liver and 1500 ╬╝g/kg for kidney. Although in the EU no MRLs have been established for antibiotics in honey, some countries including Belgium, Hungary, Switzerland and the United Kingdom have set Action Limits for lincomycin, which vary from 10 to 50 ╬╝g/kg.

The Lincomycin ELISA is a competitive enzyme immunoassay based on specific antibodies directed against lincomycin.
