Ractopamine

Ractopamine is a phenethanolamine belonging to a class of drugs known as β-Adrenergic agonists (beta-agonists) and has been found to increase muscle growth and decrease fat deposition.  Due to the nature of this group of compounds, they have a history of being used illegally, particularly by livestock producers.  Improper use of beta-agonists can cause a serious risk to human health due to the residues they leave on the meat and other foodstuffs of animal origin.   It is for this reason that in Europe all beta-agonists are banned for use in livestock and for improving athletic performance according to EU council directive 96/22/EC.

The Randox Food Diagnostics Ractopamine ELISA test kit offers excellent limits of detection 0.5ng/ml for detection of veterinary drug residues in meat.
