Lincomycin is a narrow spectrum antibiotic derived from Streptomyces lincolnensis. It is similar in structure, antibacterial spectrum and mechanism of action to macrolides and belongs to the lincosamide group which also includes pirlimycin and clindamycin. It is used in veterinary medicine to treat poultry and swine for infections with mainly gram-positive bacteria.
Responding to market demand EuroProxima launches an ELISA for the specific and sensitive screening of different matrices for Lincomycin. Details from this test, like extraction procedures, limits of detection, detection capability and recovery rates in different matrices are presented in a validation report.
