Oxytetracyline rapid test strip is developed for rapid test of Oxytetracyline contamination in honey.
The kit can be stored at room temperature (2-30°C). The test kit is stable through the expiration date marked on the foil pouch. DO NOT FREEZE. Do not store the test kit in direct sunlight.
The sensitivity of oxytetracyline in honey is 15 ppb.
Oxytetracycline was the second of the broad-spectrum tetracycline group of antibiotics to be discovered. Oxytetracycline is used to control the outbreak of American foulbrood and European foulbrood in honeybees. Like other tetracyclines, oxytetracycline is used to treat many infections, both common and rare (see Tetracycline antibiotics group). Its better absorption profile makes it preferable to tetracycline for moderately severe acne at a dosage of 250–500 mg four times a day for usually six to eight weeks at a time, but alternatives should be sought if no improvement occurs by three months.
