Cat. No.: 5081NOR
19-Nortestosterone, also known as nandrolone, belongs to the group of anabolic androgenic steroids. In some cases 19-nortestosterone is a naturally occurring compound, especially in male pigs, and pregnant cows. The EU banned the use of growth promoters in meat production since 1986. The ELISA kit contains an antibody which cross-reacts with 17ß-19-nortestosterone (100%), 17α-19-nortesterone (50%), nortestosterone-sulphate (100%), 19-nor-4-androstene-3,17-dione (240%), norgestrel (16%) and norethindrone (38%). A solid phase extraction column (C-18 Solid-Phase column) is used to reduce the influence of other urine compounds. This assay can achieve a detection limit down to 0.5 ng/ml depending on the sample preparation procedure used. Detailed information of this ELISA is given in the Product Information Sheet.
