  National Reference Laboratory for Veterinary Drug Residues (HZAU)

 

In 1998, Huazhong Agricultural University approved to establish the Institute of Veterinary Pharmaceuticals of Huazhong Agricultural University based on the Veterinary Pharmacology Teaching and Research Section. In 2002, Ministry of Agriculture of the People’s Republic of China invested 1.25 million Yuan to establish the Ministry of Agriculture key Laboratory of Food Safety Evaluation and Ministry of Agriculture Reference Laboratory for the Test of Veterinary Drug Residues. In 2003, another investment of 2 million Yuan was introduced successfully to found the physical-chemical platform of Huazhong Agricultural University. In 2004, the National Reference Laboratory for Veterinary Drug Residues(Huazhong Agricultural University) was authorized by National Development and Reform Commission and Ministry of Agriculture of the People’s Republic of China with an investment of 24.40 million Yuan. In 2007, the National Laboratory Safety Evaluation of Veterinary Drugs was authorized by Ministry of Agriculture of the People’s Republic of China with an investment of 10.96 million Yuan. In 2011, Ministry of Agriculture of the People’s Republic of China approved to establish Key Laboratory of the Detection for Veterinary Drug Residues.and in 2013, Laboratory of Quality & Safety Risk Assessment for Livestock and Poultry Products (Wuhan) is approved by Ministry of Agriculture of the People’s Republic of China.

 

This laboratory is also designated by Ministry of Agriculture of the People’s Republic of China as the testing agency for the researches of pharmacokinetics and bioavailability of veterinary drugs and the testing and verification base of clinical pharmacology of new veterinary drugs, and it is also the Wuhan Engineering Research Center of Drug Residue Testing for Animal Food.

 

The main projects of this laboratory focus on: Basic or Applied basic Researches including veterinary pharmacology and toxicology, veterinary drug residue and food safety, pharmacokinetics of veterinary drug, and antibacterial resistance etc; Discovery and development of new veterinary drug, new preparation and quick test products and regents for drug residues; Establishment of national standard of related veterinary drug; Technical advisory and service for government and producer, culture of the high level talents and training of various employees of related veterinary drug; Popularization of reasonable use and residue monitoring technology and knowledge of veterinary drug; Academic exchange and cooperation at home and abroad.

 

Five stable and distinctive research fields have been formed in the Lab during the past 30 years including pharmacokinetics, veterinary drug residue and food safety, antibacterial resistance, discovery and development of new veterinary drug and veterinary law.

 

In recent years, the laboratory undertook over 80 projects of research programs including National Basic Research Program of China (973 program), National Science and Technologies Supporting Plan, and other Key Science and Technology Programs supported by the province or the ministry and so on. Ninty-eight research outcomes were applied for national invention patient, of which fivty-two patents have been authorized; thirty-six outputs have been approved to be national standard; thirteen achievements have been recognized as owning the international advanced level; Ten-seven outcomes have been registered as the quick test products for veterinary drug residue. More than 230 articles have been published, of which, over 130 articles were published in Science Citation Index(SCI) original journals.Eight research results have been rewarded by Hubei province ,ministry of education,etc.

 

The staff members in the laboratory include 15 teachers, 10 technicians with the contract, 14 doctoral students and 62 master students.

 

The total area of the laboratory is over 5000 M2 which was compartmentalized into several sections including chemistry analysis room, biology analysis room, chemistry synthesis room and experiment animal room and so on. More than 600 precise instruments are equipped in this laboratory. The total value of the apparatus is more than 40 millions Yuan.
