Charm 3 SL3 Beta-lactam Test (Charm 3 SL3)

The Charm 3 SL3 test is a 3-minute test that enables dairies and food manufacturers to detect all six beta-lactam antibiotics allowed for use on US dairy farms. The SL3 test is US NCIMS (National Conference on Interstate Milk Shipments)and FDA approved for screening of raw commingled bovine milk.

Lower operating costs and improve transportation efficiency by clearing good milk quickly. This 3-minute Rapid One Step Assay (ROSA) test is fast and detects at sensitivities that match safe level for all beta-lactam antibiotics approved for use in the US. After performing the Charm 3 SL3 test, read and record official results in the Charm EZ or Charm ROSA Pearl-X Reader. The test may also be interpreted visually in an unofficial capacity, making it ideal for farm use.

The Charm 3 SL3 test is run throughout North America by farmers, veterinarians, truck drivers, milk receiving, and milk testing laboratories because of its speed, ease of use, portability, and minimal equipment requirements.

Lower operating costs and improve transportation efficiency by clearing good milk quickly with the Charm ROSA (Rapid One Step Assay) lateral flow strips which detect aflatoxin M1 and the most common antibiotics used to treat dairy cows. ROSA tests use patented technology to target drug sensitivities to safe and regulated levels, which prevents unnecessary rejection of milk caused by overly sensitive screening tests. The tests are easy to perform and are manufactured to test for US safe levels, EU MRL/ CODEX/ Customs Union maximum residue limits and multiple other country-specific requirements. Charm ROSA tests have been granted approval by regulatory authorities around the world.

Test results from ROSA strips may be read and officially recorded using the Charm EZ system, or the ROSA Pearl-X Reader, or may be interpreted visually in an unofficial capacity, making it ideal for farm use.
