Abstract: Residual Level of antibiotics viz: Chloramphenicol, Sulphonamide, Tetracycline, Erythromycin, Streptomycin and b-Lactams were determined in farmed shrimps collected from major fish farms of Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. Streptomycin, Tetracycline and β-Lactams could not be detected in any of the samples. Chloramphenicol, if at all present was found to be at trace level <1 ppb. Sulfonamides and Erythromycin were detected in farmed shrimps at a level <100 ppb. Charm II assay was used to quantify the antibiotics in shrimps based on a binding reaction between the antibiotic molecules and antibody attached to microbial cell. Scintillation fluids added to the tube and the radio signals from 1H3 or 6C14 counted by Charm II system are recorded.
