Salinomycin is a polyether antibiotic used to promote growth in cattle and poultry. Workers may be exposed to salinomycin through handling of animal feeds that contain the drug and it is necessary to monitor plasma samples from these workers for salinomycin to ensure safety. A method for analysis of salinomycin in plasma samples was therefore developed… (More)
