ACEVEDO, Diofanor; MONTERO, Piedad M  and  JAIMES, José D.C. Determination of Antibiotics and Microbiological Quality of Chicken Meat Commercialized in Cartagena (Colombia). Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2015, vol.26, n.1, pp.71-76. ISSN 0718-0764.

The aim of this study was to quantify the levels of sulfamethoxazole, norfloxacin, ciprofloxacin and lincomycin in chicken sold in Bazurto Market, local shops and supermarkets in the city of Cartagena (Colombia). For this 10 random samples from each site of origin were obtained, having a total of 30 samples for study. These samples were packed in new and not-used polyethylene bags properly labeled before being frozen at -18±1 °C. Quantification was performed by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). All samples exceeded the minimum amounts of drugs according to Codex Alimentarius, except breasts supermarket. These are within the limits of sulfamethoxazole and ciprofloxacin and are the samples that presented the lowest detection threshold for all analyzes. The only breasts that met the limits of Colombian legislation for microbial counts were those sold by chain supermarkets.
