“With the Charm ROSA MRLBL/TET, we move from a traditional microbiological method to a rapid and easy to use test. For the labs, it is essential to deliver a reliable diagnostic for the dairies and farmers and contribute to ensuring milk safety."

Charm Sciences, Inc. is pleased to announce that CNIEL, The French National Interprofessional Centre of Dairy Economy, has implemented the Charm ROSA MRL BLTET combo test in their respective laboratories, located in France, effective July 1, 2011.

The Charm MRLBL/TET is a beta-lactam /tetracycline combination test that detects beta-lactam and tetracycline drugs at or below Maximum Residue Limits (MRL). The test is easy to use, portable, and requires minimal equipment. Charm MRLBL/TET was specifically designed to limit rejection of non-violative milk by specifically matching EU Maximum Residue Limits.

The Charm ROSA MRLBL/TET helps confirm positive residues in milk and will further secure the safety of antibiotic testing in milk production across France.“With the Charm ROSA MRLBL/TET, we move from a traditional microbiological method to a rapid and easy to use test. For the labs, it is essential to deliver a reliable diagnostic for the dairies and farmers and contribute to ensuring milk safety. We trust Charm to fulfil our need for an adapted and competitive test,” says, Anne Pecou, Head of Assistance and Harmonization of Laboratories, of CNIEL.
