Project description

Many veterinary medicines, including coccidiostats, are poorly absorbed in vivo. Due to this, manure from treated animals may contain high amounts of residues. Consequently, vegetables that are grown on fertilized ground can take up and incorporate these contaminants. Analysis by UPLC-MS/MS will determine the quantities of coccidiostat residues in feed, manure and vegetables from an experimental study.
