Public health: how Shimadzu is making a difference

Antibiotics present in food pose a serious public health issue. Allergies to sulfonamides are very common, and the increasing popularity of antibiotics is driving microbial resistance against current antibiotics.

Monitoring the Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs) has proven essential for public health, with the MRLs for some compounds set to low ppb levels. HPLC-MS/MS is very effective at analyzing trace-level antibiotics because it is selective, fast, and very sensitive for all the compounds of interest.

Mandel offers a wide range of Shimadzu LC equpiment. You can get a look at them here.
