Analysis of Veterinary Drug Residues

Sidebar Image

Conventional agricultural animal production and - to a smaller degree - ecological animal production depend on the use of veterinary drugs. Their use is either prophylactic or therapeutic. The EU Commission has established various restrictions on the application of veterinary drugs, ranging from zero tolerance to restrictions on specific animal species and fields of insertion up to tolerable limit values. Even their use for illegal purposes is well known, i.e. to increase the weight gain efficiency during animal fattening.

The Centre of Competence for the Analysis of Veterinary Drug Residues within the global Eurofins Group, offers the examination of numerous veterinary drug residues in a great variety of food and feed. Additionally, Eurofins offers advice on sampling and finding the most reasonable scope of analyses.
