Charm Amphenicol Test Achieves ILVO Validation

Charm Sciences, Inc. is pleased to announce that its Charm Amphenicol (AMPH) test has completed ILVO validation. The AMPH test was determined to be appropriate as a screening test at dairies and farms for raw commingled cow milk. The test was evaluated for visual interpretation, on the Charm EZ system, and the Charm EZ Lite system. These systems are a combination incubator and reader in one.

“The AMPH test enables dairies and food manufacturers to detect florfenicol in raw commingled milk as well as detecting thiamphenicol and the banned antibiotic chloramphenicol,” said Robert Salter, Vice President of Regulatory Affairs. “These antibiotics are not intended for use in lactating animals that produce milk for human consumption, but veterinarians may use florfenicol for animal health and welfare. Florfenicol appears in the top 20 animal drugs in a milk residue risk ranking done by FDA-CVM (Center for Veterinary Medicine) in 2015. It is important to give farmers and dairies a quick and accurate method of detection to verify the residue can no longer be detected in the milk when this drug has been used. The ILVO validation is a third party validation to demonstrate the method is suitable for purpose as a raw milk screening test.”

Residue free raw milk yields negative results greater than 99% of the time. The AMPH method meets EU MRL and EU MRPL sensitivity regulations, and US Tolerance Levels.
