Antibiotics in Milk Test (rapid test)

NaturalCheck offers fast, affordable and reliable rapid tests for detecting penicillin and other beta-lactams in milk. Antibiotics are useful medicines, but to protect against emergence of bacterial resistance, antibiotic residues are not allowed in milk.

Rapid Field Tests for Antibiotics offer:

  • Portable use in the field, kitchen or office
  • Easy screening of many samples
  • Fast results in minutes
  • No incubator or cultures required
  • Great for quick checks on dairy farms*
  • Unique idea for science fair projects and biology classes
  • Check for yourself if your favorite brand tests clean
  • Home Test works with homogenized milk samples
  • Pro Test works with raw milk, and other non-homogenized, high fat samples (includes microtubes for optional centrifuge step)
  • Fast, reliable results with detection at or just below FDA limits for penicillin and other beta-lactam antibiotics

*The FDA's Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO) requires testing of milk entering commerce to be completed with AOAC approved tests. Until approved for commercial dairy use, NaturalCheck tests are suitable for screening for general interest, including quick checks before final PMO testing.
