Growth Promoter control screening
What are growth promoters?
Growth-promoting hormones have been used by the livestock industry for over 30 years to improve an animal's ability to more efficiently utilize nutrients and produce leaner, more affordable meat. Concerns over the use of hormones in food producing animals first arose during the late 1970s and early 1980s, when a number of incidents linked hormone residues in meat with various medical conditions. As a result, the use of growth-promoting hormones in livestock production is either prohibited (European Union) or strongly regulated (e.g. USA, Canada and Australia). Compliance with these regulations is monitored by national monitoring programmes.

What is the growth promoter control?
The Randox Food Diagnostics growth promoter control is used in conjunction with the biochip technology Evidence Investigator Growth Promoter Rapid Screen and Growth Promoter Multiple Matrix Screen. This multi – analyte control provides accurately assigned target values and ranges for 9 different promoters.
