|Abstract:||An inter-laboratory comparison was carried out to assess the method performance characteristics of an analytical method based on thin layer chromatography (TLC) coupled to microbiological detection (bio-autography) for screening feed samples for the presence of spiramycin, tylosin and virginiamycin. The required detection limit was 1 mg kg-1 (expressed in microbiological activity). For tylosin and virginiamycin, acceptable values of the sensitivity were obtained on all concentrations including 1 mg kg-1. Therefore the method fulfils the criterion regarding the required sensitivity at the target detection limit for tylosin and virginiamycin, whereas for spiramycin the limit of detection was 2 mg/kg.|
