Abstract

A surface plasmon resonance biosensor immunoassay has been developed for multi-residue determination of 13 (fluoro)quinolone antibiotics in poultry meat, eggs and fish. The following performance characteristics were determined according to the guidelines laid down for screening assay validation in European Decision 2002/657/EC: detection capability, specificity/selectivity, decision limit, repeatability, ruggedness and stability. The detection capability estimated for norfloxacin, the reference fluoroquinolone, was below 0.5, 1 and 1.5 ng g-1 for poultry meat, egg and fish, respectively. The screening assay proved specific and showed satisfactory sensitivity below the MRL levels even though flumequine and oxolinic acid had lower cross-reactivities. A wide range of non-MRL substances were also detected at concentrations below 10 ng g-1. Repeatability was good with both intra- and inter-assay coefficients of variation
