What are Chinolones?

Chinolones are antibiotics which inhibit the enzyme gyrase and therefore cell division of bacteria. Enrofloxacin and its metabolite Ciprofloxacin are two representatives of the chinolones which are tested positive very often in eggs and poultry. According to EU legislation, registration does not include treatment of poultry used for the production of eggs. However, applications in veterinary practice are observed frequently in treatment emergencies.

Our spectrum of active substances comprises 18 chinolones which we determine for you in various matrices of animal origin – egg, milk, meat and fish. For analysis we exclusively use mass spectrometric confirmatory methods (LC-MS-MS). Apart from determining limits of detection and quantification GALAB has also determined cc-alpha and cc-beta for its methods according to commission decision 657/2002.
