Model II - Charm Macrolide Tests
Charm II is the only rapid testing system to detect all members of the macrolide antibiotic family in dairy and other food products. Macrolide antibiotics function though the inhibition of protein synthesis in bacterial cells. The macrolide family of antibiotics includes erythromycin, pirlimycin, spiramycin, tilmicosin, tulathromycin, and tylosin. Macrolides are closely related structurally to the lincosamide family of antibiotics including lincomycin and clindamycin, and often cross-react on macrolide tests.
- Detect macrolides and lincosamides
- 10 minute sequential assay
- No extraction for milk
- 45 to 60 minute extractions for non-dairy products
- Meet global regulatory requirements
