Method Abstract 104

MA 104 / POLYETHER ANTIBIOTICS

Polyether antibiotics, such as Monensin, Narasin, and Salinomycin, in raw material, premix, liquid supplements, and final feeds, are best quantified using a HPLC equipped with a post-column reactor. The polyether antibiotics react, post-column, with Vanillin in the presence of sulfuric acid, and the resulting products can be detected at 520 nm. However, this corrosive reagent can adversely degrade most instruments. Pickering’s special post-column systems are comprised of non-metallic parts and washing pump head, which offers resistance to sulfuric acid. Special operating instructions will also be included with this instrument.
