Hormones and Veterinary Drugs in Farm Animals

Objective



The objective of the work is to prepare a series of certified reference materials (CRMs) required for the implementation of the EC Directive 86/469 in relation to the surveillance of residues of legal veterinary drugs in food producing animals or of the use of legal veterinary drugs in such animals. For legal veterinary drugs the CRM will be related to EC Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs), for illegal drugs the CRM will be related to zero tolerance, i.e. to analytical possibilities.

The following RMs will be produced:

calf liver: trenbolone, 1 concentration level and blank
calf liver: clenbutamole + salbutamol + terbutamol, 1 respective concentration level and blank
pig kidney: chlortetracycline, 1 concentration level and blank
