Hog Charm II Tetracycline Test Screening Results Compared with a Liquid Chromatography Tandem Mass Spectrometry 10-μg/kg Method.
Summary of "Hog Charm II Tetracycline Test Screening Results Compared with a Liquid Chromatography Tandem Mass Spectrometry 10-μg/kg Method."
Pork tissue samples that tested positive and negative by the Charm II tetracycline test screening method in the slaughter plant laboratory were tested with the modified AOAC International liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS-MS) method 995.09 to determine the predictive value of the screening method at detecting total tetracyclines at 10 μg/kg of tissue, in compliance with Russian import regulations. There were 218 presumptive-positive tetracycline samples of 4,195 randomly tested hogs. Of these screening test positive samples, 83% (182) were positive, >10 μg/kg by LC-MS-MS; 12.8% (28) were false violative, greater than limit of detection (LOD) but <10 μg/kg; and 4.2% (8) were not detected at the LC-MS-MS LOD. The 36 false-violative and not-detected samples represent 1% of the total samples screened. Twenty-seven of 30 randomly selected tetracycline screening negative samples tested below the LC-MS-MS LOD, and 3 samples tested <3 μg/kg chlortetracycline. Results indicate that the Charm II tetracycline test is effective at predicting hogs containing >10 μg/kg total tetracyclines in compliance with Russian import regulations.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The identification of selected parameters in newborn infants by various tests, examinations, or other procedures. Screening may be performed by clinical or laboratory measures. A screening test is designed to sort out healthy neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN) from those not well, but the screening test is not intended as a diagnostic device, rather instead as epidemiologic.
False Positive Reactions
Positive test results in subjects who do not possess the attribute for which the test is conducted. The labeling of healthy persons as diseased when screening in the detection of disease. (Last, A Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)
False Negative Reactions
Negative test results in subjects who possess the attribute for which the test is conducted. The labeling of diseased persons as healthy when screening in the detection of disease. (Last, A Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)
Sensitivity And Specificity
Measures for assessing the results of diagnostic and screening tests. Sensitivity represents the proportion of truly diseased persons in a screened population who are identified as being diseased by the test. It is a measure of the probability of correctly diagnosing a condition. Specificity is the proportion of truly nondiseased persons who are so identified by the screening test. It is a measure of the probability of correctly identifying a nondiseased person. (From Last, Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)
