Antibiotic Residue Processing Systems
Learn how The ONIX Corporation’s dehydration systems can serve the pharmaceutical industry and help process antibiotic residue
An antibiotic is an antimicrobial drug that is used to treat and prevent bacterial infection. They work by either killing or inhibiting the growth of bacteria. Antibiotics are effective and easy to get a hold of but are often overused or misused, which has allowed for the growth of antibacterial resistance. This has become such a huge issue worldwide that the World Health Organization has classified antibiotic resistance as a serious threat.
Although there are many warnings against the overuse of antibiotics, they are still used in food-producing animals to help maintain their health and promote growth. The use of antibiotics in food-producing animals often leave antibiotic residues in meat, milk, and eggs that are later consumed by people. Sometimes the use of antibiotics in animals is unavoidable, but in many cases it’s not needed, and leads to a sleuth of problems, often related to antibiotic resistance.
Antibiotic resides are also potentially carcinogenic and have toxic properties that can become a public health risk if consumed in unregulated amounts.
