Abstract: Residual Level of antibiotics viz: Chloramphenicol, Sulphonamide, Tetracycline, Erythromycin, Streptomycin and <span style="font-family:Symbol;mso-ascii-font-family:" times="" new="" roman";="" mso-hansi-font-family:"times="" roman";mso-char-type:symbol;mso-symbol-font-family:="" symbol"="" lang="EN-GB">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 <span style="font-family:Symbol;mso-ascii-font-family:" times="" new="" roman";mso-hansi-font-family:="" "times="" roman";mso-char-type:symbol;mso-symbol-font-family:symbol"="" lang="EN-GB"><1 ppb. Sulfonamides and Erythromycin were detected in farmed shrimps at a level <span style="font-family:Symbol;mso-ascii-font-family: " times="" new="" roman";mso-hansi-font-family:"times="" roman";mso-char-type:symbol;="" mso-symbol-font-family:symbol"="" lang="EN-GB"><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 <sub>1</sub>H<sup>3</sup> or <sub>6</sub>C<sup>14</sup> counted by Charm II system are recorded. </span></span></span>
