Equipments (Option)
Mini Pipette(200μL)
Tips for mini pipette

1. Take 200 μL milk specimen, add into micro well, mix with the pink agent 10 times.
Remark: avoid specimen residues too much in the well.
2. Incubate 3 minutes
3. Insert strips into the wells
4. Incubate 5 minutes
5. Take out strips and read results by eye or reader.

Visual inspection
1. If C line visible, interpret according to the instruction. T line compare with C line to interpret positive or negative.
2. If C & T are invisible, it’s invalid detection, repeat testing again.

Reader Interpretation
Refer to the instruction

    Trivia questions: What is chloramphenicol?


    Chloramphenicol is white or colorless needle-like or flaky crystals, melting point 149.7 ~ 150.79C, easily soluble in methanol, ethanol, propanol and ethyl acetate, slightly soluble in ether and chloroform, insoluble in petroleum ether And benzene. Chloramphenicol is extremely stable, and its aqueous solution will not lose its effect after boiling for 5h.

    Chloramphenicol mode of action

    Chloramphenicol has a bacteriostatic effect by inhibiting protein synthesis. It prevents the expansion of the protein chain by inhibiting the peptidyl transferase activity of bacterial ribosomes. It specifically binds to the residues of A2451 and A2452 in the 23S rRNA of the 50S ribosomal subunit, thereby preventing formation Compared to macrolides, chloramphenicol directly interferes with the substrate binding in the ribosome and macrolides spatially prevent the growth of polypeptides.

    Chloramphenicol uses

    Chloramphenicol for dogs

    Veterinarians usually use it to treat skin infections, wound infections, bone infections, intestinal infections and pneumonia in cats and dogs. It is also effective against neurological infections, such as meningitis and encephalitis, and certain tick-borne diseases, such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
    Chloramphenicol for dogs side effects: Chloramphenicol can cause side effects in some animal patients, the most common of which include vomiting, diarrhea, and loss of appetite. If you take high-dose medications for a long time, blood abnormalities can occur.
    Chloramphenicol for dogs dosage: For dogs, the usual dose is 25 lbs / lb (50 mg / kg) orally every eight hours

    Chloramphenicol for cats

    To treat various bacterial infections, including skin infections, wound infections, bone infections, central nervous system infections (encephalitis, meningitis), pneumonia and intestinal infections (such as diarrhea), protozoal infections.
    Chloramphenicol for cats dosage: For cats 6 to 10 mg / lb (12.5 to 20 mg / kg) orally every 12 hours.

    Chloramphenicol side effects

    The main adverse reaction is the inhibition of bone marrow hematopoietic function:
    One is the reversible reduction of various types of blood cells, in which granulocytes first decrease, and this response is related to dose and treatment course. Once found, the drug should be stopped in time and can be resumed;
    The second is irreversible aplastic anemia. Although rare, it has a high mortality rate. This reaction is allergic and has no direct relationship with the dose course. May be related to the inhibition of chloramphenicol in bone marrow hematopoietic cells by the same 70S ribosomes as bacteria.
    In order to prevent toxic reactions of the hematopoietic system, abuse should be avoided, and blood images should be checked frequently when applied. Chloramphenicol can also produce gastrointestinal reactions and secondary infections.

    Chloramphenicol allergy

    A few patients may develop allergic reactions such as rash and angioedema, but they are relatively mild.


    In veterinary use, chloramphenicol is currently considered to be the most useful treatment for Koala Chlamydia, and is widely used in the breeding of various livestock. For the dairy farming industry, the use of chloramphenicol can effectively reduce the problems of dairy cow diseases, but it may also cause chloramphenicol residues in milk. The chloramphenicol rapid test kit independently developed by Ballya can effectively detect chloramphenicol residues in milk. Not only chloramphenicol, Ballya also has a rapid test kit for various antibiotics. The test results comply with EU standards, not only simple operation, but also short time and high accuracy. In the future Ballya will continue to do further research in this area.
