  1. Tiamulin
    Food safety experts at Fera can screen your samples for residues of the veterinary medicine, tiamulin, highlighting their presence and quantifying levels present. Tiamulin is a member of the pleuromutilin class of antibiotic drugs that is used in the treatment of bacterial infections particularly for pigs and poultry.
  2. Nitroimidazole
    Nitroimidazoles are a group of drugs that have both antiprotozoal and antibacterial activity and have been used, for example, to control histomoniasis (a protozoal infection) in poultry. In the EU they are prohibited from use as veterinary medicines.
  3. Sulfonamides
    Sulphonamides (also called Sulfonamides) are the oldest and remain among the most widely used antibacterial agents in veterinary medicine, chiefly because of low cost and their relative efficacy in some common bacterial diseases.
  4. Quinolones (including fluoroquinolones)

    Fera scientists can analyse food samples to detect residues from quinolones (and fluoroquinolones). We can also provide the evidence required by regulators to validate the levels of quinolones within your food products.

  5. Penicillins/Cephalosporins

    Fera food scientists are able to highlight and quantify the levels of a range of penicillins and cephalosporins, within a variety of foodstuffs. We can also provide the evidence required by regulators to validate the levels of penicillins and cephalosporins within your food products.

  6. Macrolides
    Fera scientists can analyse food samples to detect residues from macrolides (including lincosamides). We can also provide the evidence required by regulators to validate the levels of macrolides within your food products
  7. Coccidiostats (Multi-residue)

    Fera food scientists are able to highlight and quantify the levels of a range of coccidostats, within a variety of foodstuffs. We can also provide the evidence required by regulators to validate the levels of coccidostats within your food products.

  8. Benzimidazoles (and imidazothiazoles)
    Fera food scientists are able to highlight and quantify the levels of a range of benzimidazoles, within a variety of foodstuffs. We can also provide the evidence required by regulators to validate the levels of benzimidazoles within your food products.
  9. β-agonists
    β-Agonists (beta-agonists or Beta adrenergic agonists) are used in veterinary medicine to treat pulmonary disorders, but have also been used illegally as growth promoters for more efficient meat production. Fera’s food safety scientists can screen your food samples to check residue levels and confirm they are not present where not permitted, for example from use as illicit growth promoters in the EU.
  10. Aminoglycosides
    In veterinary medicine in the European Union (EU), Aminoglycosides (AGs) account for 3.5% of the total sales of antimicrobials. Fera's food safety experts can highlight the presence of Aminoglycosides across a range of food types including: fish, red meat, honey, and milk.
  11. Veterinary Medicines Multi-Residue Screen (Option 1)

    Within this multi-residue screen, Option 1, Fera food safety experts highlight the presence of over 60 antimicrobial veterinary medicine residues within a single screen. The classes of antimicrobial substances covered include b-lactams, cephalosporins, macrolides, quindones, sulfonamides and tetracyclines.

  12. Nitrofurans
    Fera food safety experts are ideally suited to highlight and quantify a range of Nitrofurans within your food sample. Making use of extensive, industry accepted techniques our accurate results are invaluable when meeting regulations.
