Dairy Antibiotics

Dairy antibiotic residues pose risks to both product quality and brand confidence, and the importance of a fast and easy-to-use test for their presence in milk cannot be understated. We offers rapid, easy-to-use and internationally-approved tests that can be run anywhere, from the receiving lab to the farm or milk tanker, in just five minutes.

The Raptor® Integrated Analysis Platform is a lateral flow test strip reader with built-in incubation. The Raptor provides an easy way to objectively analyze and store the results of Neogen®’s lateral flow tests. Raptor is capable of analyzing up to three samples independently and simultaneously, provided they are set to the same incubation temperature and time. Raptor can be used with Neogen’s BetaStar® Advanced, BetaStar S, Reveal® Q+ Aflatoxin, Reveal Q+ Fumonisin, Reveal Q+ DON, and Reveal Q+ MAX test kits.
