Ractopamine ELISA Kit


 

Ractopamine hydrochloride is a growth promoter and is pharmacologically classified as a phenethanolamine β-adrenoceptor agonist. The metabolic fate of this product is similar in the target species (pigs and cattle), laboratory animals and humans. It makes livestock grow faster with leaner meat and less fat deposition. The livestock demonstrate higher feed efficiency which means that they produce more meat from the same amount of feed. Livestock treated with Ractopamine can suffer significant adverse health effects. They are the opposite of the more familiar beta blockers which slow the heart rate. Beta agonists such as this product speed the animal’s heart rate mimicking stress hormones.
