Cat. No.: 5101FLUM
Flumequine is a second generation quinolone antibiotic and is mainly active against Gram negative bacteria. It is used in bovine, ovine, poultry, rabbits, goats, horses and salmonidae. As all other (fluoro)quinolones, flumequine acts by inhibiting bacterial DNA-gyrase, thus disrupting its activity by interfering with the DNA annealing reaction. The MRLs for flumequine in the different matrices depend on the matrix and the species from which the matrix originates. MRLs vary from 50 µg/kg (milk) to 1.500 µg/kg. EuroProxima developed a test kit for Flumequine and the antibody used in the ELISA test is specific for flumequine and does not cross-react with any of the other fluoroquinolones tested. Detailed information of this product is given in the Product Information Sheet.
