JRC method to measure feed additive becomes CEN standard
Feed aditives reach the market following a prior safety and quality evaluation and authorisation by the European Commission© EU, 2012
The European Committee for Standardization, CEN, has adopted an analytical method developed by the JRC's Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (IRMM) to measure the levels of the feed additive, semduramicin, in animal feeding stuffs.
JRC researchers developed an analytical method consisting of a common sample preparation and then analysis of semduramicin by liquid chromatography coupled to either mass spectrometry detection or UV detection using post-column derivatisation. A collaborative study subsequently confirmed that the method was fit for purpose.
