Rifampicin Pharmacological Action
Rifampicin is a semi-synthetic broad-spectrum bactericide that binds firmly to the b subunit of DNA-dependent RNA polymerase. Rifampicin inhibits the synthesis of bacterial RNA and prevents the enzyme from connecting with DNA, thereby blocking the RNA transcription process. Rifampicin has bactericidal effects on most Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Rifampicin also has a strong inhibitory effect on anaerobic bacteria such as Mycoplasma, Leprosy, Escherichia coli, Salmonella, Clostridium weischii, Chlamydia and certain viruses.

Limitations of BALLYA Rifampin Test?
BALLYA Rifampin 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, rifampin 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 rifampin which leads to the residue of rifampin in food. Rifampin is harmful to the human body and should be avoided as much as possible. The BALLYA Rifampin Test provided by BALLYAcan effectively detect the rifampin in the samples. Simple operation, short detection time and high accuracy are the characteristics of this product.
