EuroProxima Dimetridazole is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for quantitative analysis of dimetridazole in various matrices.
Dimetridazole (DMZ) is a 5-nitroimidazole drug, traditionally used for the prevention and treatment of histomoniasis in turkeys, trichomoniasis in pigeons, genital trichomoniasis in cattle and the prevention and treatment of haemorrhagic enteritis in pigs. DMZ is listed in Annex IV of Council Regulation 2377/90/EC, and is thus banned from the use in food-producing animals.
The Dimetridazole ELISA is a competitive enzyme immunoassay based on antibodies directed against dimetridazole.
