BALLYA Flavomycin Test is manufactured by BALLYA, it’s rapid test for detection flavomycin residues in feed product and food, especially in feed. Lateral flow assay test base on the gold immunochromatography assay technology.
Flavomycin is a phosphorylated polysaccharide antibiotic, light brown to brown powder; it has a special smell. Bacteria are not easy to develop resistance to flavomycin, and flavomycin is not easy to develop cross-resistance with other antibiotics. Flavomycin has a narrow antibacterial spectrum, which is mainly effective against Gram-positive bacteria and resistant to other antibiotics. Ram-positive bacteria are also effective, but they are weak against gram-negative bacteria.
Flavomycin antibacterial action mechanism
Its antibacterial action mechanism is to inhibit the reproduction of bacteria by interfering with the biosynthesis of peptidoglycan, a structural substance of the cell wall.
Flavomycin growth promoting principle
It may be that it can improve the digestion of energy and protein in feed; it can thin the intestinal wall to improve the absorption of nutrients; it can effectively maintain the balance of intestinal flora and the stability of rumen pH.
How Flavomycin uses for?
It is very effective against Gram-positive bacteria in the digestive tract of livestock and poultry.
Usage and dosage
The amount that can be used for chicken feed is 1 (100×104U)-5 (500×104U) g/t; It can be used for pig feed under 2 months of age, with a dosage of 10-25g/t; It can be used for pig feed under 4 months of age, and the maximum use amount is 5g/t; It can also be used for beef cattle feed, the dosage is 30-50 mg/(head/day).
Please follow the doctor's advice for specific use, and do not use it without authorization!
What are the Flavomycin side effects?
Flavomycin is hardly absorbed, excreted quickly, has low toxicity, and is not easy to cause drug residue; animals have no similar bacterial cell structure, and animals have good tolerance; one of the four growth-promoting agents approved by the EU after 1998; Heat-resistant treatment.
The toxicity of flavomycin is extremely low. The LD50 of male mice is greater than 10g/kg for oral administration and 1520 mg/kg for intraperitoneal injection.
Flavomycin drug interactions
Flavomycin does not produce antagonism with other antibiotics and can be used in combination with sulfa drugs, tiamulin, erythromycin, lincomycinand ionophore anticoccidial drugs.
Use of flavomycin in feed
Adding flavomycin in poultry feed can increase weight gain and feed efficiency, prevent coccidiosis, enhance heat stress resistance, increase egg production rate of laying hens, and promote pigmentation.
Feeding flavomycin can promote pig weight gain, especially in the muscle growth stage, improve feed conversion rate, prevent piglet diarrhea, increase piglet survival rate, and significantly improve economic benefits.
Beef cattle feed
In beef cattle, flavomycin can significantly increase the weight gain and feed conversion rate, slightly increase the slaughter rate and net meat rate, and significantly improve the lean meat rate without affecting the carcass quality. The recommended dosage is 45 mg per day.
What specimen can be detected by BALLYA Flavomycin Test?
Specimen include: all kinds of feeds and food. Widely used in feed industry and food processing industry. You can choose the right products according to your needs.
Significance of testing Flavomycin
To protect the animal have health feed, food and avoid contaminated food. The flavomycin is harmful for animal being, can not take too much in the body.
1. Take feed or food specimen 2. Add the supernatant to cassette 3. Wait for 15 minutes to result 4. The details of operation, refer to the kit instruction
Limitations of BALLYA Flavomycin Test?
BALLYA Flavomycin Test is a qualitative test kit. It’s only for screening purpose. If have positive cases or suspected case, maybe use other detection method to make a further detection, such as, ELISA, PCR, qPCR, etc.
As a pharmaceutical feed additive, flavomycin can significantly promote weight gain and increase feed conversion rate, and is widely used in the field of livestock and poultry breeding. However, many people do not pay attention to the dosage and usage of flavomycin, which leads to the residue of flavomycin in food. Flavomycin is harmful to the human body and should be avoided as much as possible.
The BALLYA Flavomycin Test provided by BALLYA can effectively detect the flavomycin in the samples. Simple operation, short detection time and high accuracy are the characteristics of this product.
