Tetracyclines are partly natural types of Streptomyces and partially semi-synthetic antibiotics with an extraordinarily broad spectrum of activity. They were the first major group of antibiotics for which the term “broad-spectrum” were used.
The substances chlortetracycline, oxytetracycline, tetracycline and doxycycline are approved for the treatment of animals intended for foodstuff production. Their use requires that waiting periods be observed, which are calculated such that once the waiting period has elapsed the concentrations in the foodstuff are below the maximum residue limits.
Due to the widespread use of tetracyclines, monitoring carried out encompasses virtually all animal species involved in the production of foodstuffs as well as the primary products milk, eggs and honey.
For your analysis and investigations we can offer Doxycycline-13C,d3.
