Compolents (96T / box)
Instruction                          1
Tube                                     12

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 spectinomycin?


Spectinomycin mainly has high antibacterial activity against Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Penicillin-sensitive bacteria and penicillinase-producing Neisseria gonorrhoeae are usually sensitive to this product. Strains resistant to this product are often still sensitive to streptomycin, gentamicin, tobramycin, etc. Spectinomycin has moderate antibacterial activity against many Enterobacteriaceae bacteria.

Spectinomycin stability

Stable for up to 1 year after receipt when stored at +4 °C. Stock solutions are stable for up to 3 months at -20 °C. The Spectinomycin storage should keep refrigerated, sealed and protected from light.

Spectinomycin resistance

The resistance to spectinomycin is usually attributed to enzymes that inactivate the drug through adenylylation. It is possible to distinguish between at least two major adenosyltransferase (AAD) groups (also known as nucleotide-based transferases (ANTs)) involved in spectinomycin resistance.

Spectinomycin mechanism of action

It has certain antibacterial effect on Gram-positive and negative bacteria, such as hemolytic streptococcus, pneumococcus and staphylococcus epidermidis, E. coli, pneumococcus, salmonella and dysentery, etc., but the effect is weak. The most prominent feature is that it has a special effect on the inhibition of Neisseria gonorrhoeae that produces penicillinase, and it is a new type of antibiotic specialized for the treatment of gonorrhea. It inhibits both 6.3 to 12 mg / L enzyme-producing and non-enzyme-producing strains, and drug-resistant strains rarely appear, but it has no effect on Treponema pallidum and Chlamydia trachomatis.

Spectinomycin for animals

Spectinomycin for pigs

For the prevention of growing swine dysentery weighing up to 57 kg.
When this medicinal feed is fed at the recommended levels of 22 mg / kg lincomycin and 22 mg / kg spectinomycin in the recommended whole feed, treated pigs must not They were slaughtered for food for at least 24 hours.

Spectinomycin for goats

To treat scours due to coccidia, E. Coli and bacterial scours, the feet of sheep and goats are rotten. Effective on most forms of scours.

Spectinomycin for chickens

In chickens, spectinomycin is administered orally in drinking water and feed at doses equivalent to 100 mg/kg bw/day for 3 to 7 days. Spectinomycin powder for oral solution is indicated to aid in the prevention of mortality due to CRD associated with susceptible Mycoplasma gallisepticum.

Spectinomycin for dogs

The dog has a single oral dose of 1000 mg / kg and a single intravenous dose of 500 and 1000 mg / kg. Intravenous doses of 2000 mg / kg in dogs cause transient collapse. Continuous peripheral oral doses of up to 500 mg / kg do not cause poisoning hazards in dogs.

Spectinomycin for cattle

Spectinomycin is used to treat bovine respiratory disease caused by Pasteurella haemolyticus or Pasteurella multocida. It is not related to Mycoplasma bovis.

Spectinomycin side effects

Inject local pain, urticaria, headache, dizziness, nausea, fever, chills, insomnia, and mild itching. Occasionally, hemoglobin and hematocrit are reduced, creatinine clearance is reduced, liver function is impaired, and cases of decreased urine output occur.


Spectinomycin's low toxicity and broad-spectrum antibacterial properties make it more and more widely used in agriculture and animal husbandry. It is also common in dairy farming, so that milk pits produced by cows can contain residual spectinomycin. Ballya provides a highly efficient spectinomycin rapid detection kit that can accurately detect spectinomycin residues in milk. The test results are comply with EU standards, but they are easy to operate and short in time and high in accuracy. Ballya will continue to do more research in this area.
