Colistin

Colistin A and B are polypeptide antibiotics that have been used in medicine and veterinary for over 50 years.

Recently the European Medicines Agency has proposed to reduce the use of  the antibiotic drug colistin in food producing animals. For several food matrices maximum residue limits (MRLs) are set for colistin.

EuroProxima has developed an ELISA test to screen for the presence of colistin in milk, meat, eggs, liver, fish and feed.
