Raptor Biphenyl LC Columns provide the data needed for global antibiotic testing

Because the widespread use of preventative veterinary antibiotics has resulted in increased antimicrobial resistance in humans, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released guidelines to address the issue in food animals (December 11, 2013). Similar constraints are also prevalent in the European Union.  Recently, European Researchers1 developed a validated method for the determination of veterinary antibiotics in bovine urine by LC-MS/MS. The column chosen was a Raptor Biphenyl column (150 x 2.1 mm, 2.7 um), because of superior resolution and sensitivity relative to other columns tested. While Restek scientists claim no affiliation with these researchers, their universities, their methods or results, we respect their efforts and are proud to provide chromatographic products that make their analyses possible. The paper can be found on the Elsevier’s Science Direct website for purchase. View the abstract here: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0308814615004707
