WVDL No Longer Provides Testing for Antimicrobial Residue in Cattle effective 1 February 2014

Antimicrobial Residue Testing No Longer Offered at WVDL

This test, performed on bovine urine, made use of a commercially available kit called the PremiTest Antibiotic Test Kit. Veterinarians wishing to perform this test for their clients can obtain a block heater and kits from Nelson Jameson Inc of Marshfield, Wisconsin https://nelsonjameson.com/PremiTest-Antibiotic-Urine-Test-Kits-p2675.html.  The kits are inexpensive, and the test is easy to perform and amenable to in-clinic use.

We apologize for any difficulty this may cause. However, because the test is available as a commercial kit, veterinarians can still offer this service to their clients.

Please contact the WVDL with questions.
