EuroProxima Promazine, generic is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for screening and quantitative analysis of several promazines in tissue, liver, urine and kidney.
Promazines belong to the phenothiazine class of antipsychotics. These agents are tranquillisers that are commonly used to reduce stress during transportation of food producing animals. Furthermore, promazines are used in treating restlessness and agitation of horses and domestic cattle. In the EU the use of phenothiazine derivatives (chlorpromazine, acepromazine, propionylpromazine) to treat animals intended for human consumption is totally prohibited. There exists no Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) for these agents.
The EuroProxima Promazine, generic ELISA is a competitive enzyme immunoassay based on antibodies directed against promazine.
