Drug-Free and Antibiotic-Free Testing
Around the world, regulations for food (both intended for human and animal consumption) are becoming more stringent, and consumers have become more concerned with how our foods are processed. Drugs and antibiotics accumulate in the tissues of poultry and livestock, which without monitoring can lead to unsafe levels of drugs. Those drugs can make their way to consumers, harming pets and people in some instances. So it’s important to know that your products are within the allowed tolerances for drug residues.
Certify Your Products with Independent Lab Testing
Do you need to certify your products are drug- or antibiotic-free? Trilogy Analytical Laboratories can help you with that. As an ISO 17025 accredited testing laboratory, we are setting industry standards for testing. We follow a methodology based on FSIS methods that we’ve painstakingly honed and perfected to offer accurate and rapid results. You will have certified results as evidence of the care you’re taking in the manufacturing of your food products.
Additionally, we offer screening for residues that many other laboratories do not. We can provide you with comprehensive, timely testing for all of your food or feed products.
Animal Drug Residue Screening
Our analytical screening provides quantitative results for animal drugs and antibiotics from both urine and tissue samples. Our testing methodology is LC/MS/MS, and we can report those results to you within 5 to 10 business days.
We can also test for additional compounds. See the table below for more information on the specific drug residues we test for regularly. If there’s something you need you don’t see here, please contact us to discuss your needs.
