BetaStar® is a receptor assay test for rapid determination of beta-lactam and cephalosporin antibiotics (e.g.,penicillin, ampicillin, cephalonium etc.) in milk.
As beta-lactams such as penicillins are generally by far the most used drugs for treatment of mastitis in cattle, BetaStar® is an ideal choice for fast and reliable screening of incoming raw milk at the dairy entrance.
BetaStar® is a fast and robust test, which can easily be used by dairies, farmers, truck drivers, milk receivers and milk-testing laboratories. The test takes 5-minutes and can be read visually or by way of an electronic reader. The results on the test strips are permanent – offering a fully flexible way of storing results for full regulatory compliance and traceability.
