||Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) |
|Drug Class Name
||Flunixin, NSAID, a nicotinic acid derivative|
||Screening of Flunixin Residues by ELISA|
|Scope and Application
||This method can be used to screen for the presence of flunixin in bovine liver and muscle.
||Homogenized liver and muscle tissue samples are extracted by centrifugation using phosphate extraction buffer. Aliquots of the extracts are the analyzed on ELISA plates and the results read as optimum absorbance values at 630nm or 650nm on a Biotec Autoreader
