GALAB can now offer the analysis of Avermectins

What are avermectins?

Avermectins, such as Abamectin, Doramectin, Emamectin, Eprinomectin, and Ivermectin, as well as Milbemycins like Moxidectin, belong to the macrocyclic lactones produced through the fermentation of actinomycetes (Streptomyces). These compounds are used in various ways, both in their natural state and in their chemically modified, so-called semi-synthetic form. 

Wide range of uses as antiparasitic agents

Avermectins have diverse applications, including the control of parasites in domestic and farm animals, particularly as anthelmintics against parasitic worms. Additionally, they are used to combat mite infestation in plants. 

Key industries utilizing Avermectins include the dairy, egg, and meat industries. In these sectors, the potential infestation of farm animals with parasitic organisms is particularly critical. 

Restricted use

Studies on mammals, for example, show very high acute toxicity for abamectin through oral intake or inhalation. Short-term dietary studies have revealed characteristic signs of central nervous system poisoning. As a result, the acceptable daily intake (ADI) for abamectin has been set at 0.0012 mg/kg body weight per day.

The use of certain Avermectins is restricted by EU Regulation 37/2010, especially for mammals whose milk is intended for human consumption. This emphasizes the need for precise analysis and monitoring to ensure that the use of these substances complies with legal requirements. 

Precise measurements

GALAB can now offer the capability to analyse Avermectins and Moxidectin with a detection limit of 2 µg/kg. These measurements are crucial to ensure that the application of these substances in agriculture and veterinary medicine is in accordance with legal regulations.
