MP Mike Lake announced an investment of over $350,000 to SciMed Technologies for the development of a new device for the rapid and simultaneous detection of multiple antibiotic residues in dairy milk.

This project will result in the development of a device that will allow dairy producers to quickly detect antibiotic residues in milk without ever leaving the farm.

The Canadian dairy industry already abides by strict quality standards that prevent and reduce food safety hazards and risks on the farm. This new technology will help ensure the highest quality of dairy milk and contribute to the excellent reputation of Canadian dairy products.

SciMed Technologies president Dr Rajan Gupta says that the new immuno-biochip technology will help ensure milk and agri-food products meet the regulatory requirements and label claims for antibiotic content in dairy products. He says the technology will help producers remain competitive while adopting newer technologies with enhanced profitability
