The project will take place between 2018 and 2020. One of the project’s targets is developing a new test for antibiotics detection in live animals.
Zeulab has more than 20 years of experience in vitro diagnostic tests for antibiotics detection in food. The biotechnological company has more than 20 tests for detection of antibiotics in food and a novel system, E-READER, which works with microbial tests (Eclipse or Explorer), controls assay time and reads the results in an automated way.
The project was presented the 24th of January in the University of Zaragoza (UNIZAR) with all the partners.
The project TESTACOS will help to increase the meat quality in France and Spain. During the three years’ project more than 4000 samples will be analyzed looking for antibiotics. Besides, new antibiotic tests for live animals will be developed to minimise contaminated products. The study will be carried out in the POCTEFA region (north-east of Spain and south of France).
The project partners are: Agroalimentary Institute of Aragon (IA2-UNIZAR), the University of La Rioja, the University of Perpignan, the National Veterinary School of Toulouse, Public Health Laboratory of Bilbao, Biosentec (Toulouse) and Zeulab (Zaragoza).
