Marker will reduce the search time for antibiotics in products


Vlada Chaidonova, a young TSU physicist, is developing a spectral express method for determining antibiotics in food using a fluorescent marker. This method reduces food research time from two days to 15 minutes.

Vlada Chaidonova is a postgraduate student of the Department of Optics and Spectroscopy, Faculty of Physics. She also works at the Center for Hygiene and Epidemiology, so her dissertation research is directly related to her future place of work.

A fluorescent marker is a substance that is introduced into a product and shows the presence of certain technogenic impurities in it. It is assumed that the list of products where antibiotics can be quickly detected with the help of a marker will be, first of all, dairy products.
