Food Allergen Testing

Food allergy, an immune response to proteins present in food that the body mistakenly believes are harmful, is an important health problem of increasing concern in developed countries. Allergens are the largest single cause of global product recalls, with the major risk for food manufacturers being the potential for cross contamination with food allergens during production processes. The aim of any food manufacturer‘s Food Allergen Management Program is to minimize this risk. An important tool in any allergen management plan is testing for the presence or, better still, absence of allergens.

AgraQuant® Allergen ELISA Kits

Romer Labs® developed a range of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) based test kits, the AgraQuant® Allergen ELISA Kits. These sandwich ELISAs are used for the quantitative analysis of food allergens in the laboratory.

AgraStrip® Allergen Test Strips

In addition, Romer Labs® has a new product line for the rapid and simple detection of allergens- the AgraStrip® Allergen Test Strips, a lateral flow strip test designed for application in the production facility. Real time testing using on-site lateral flow methods allows for quick testing and immediate decision making, especially when a fast turnaround or trouble shooting is necessary. Solid products such as raw materials, in-process materials or finished products and liquid samples such as liquid products or rinse water can be tested. Furthermore, surface swabbing can be conducted. Everything is supplied within the test kit (no equipment required) and being stored at ambient temperatures allows immediate use of the test. The kits are easy to use, require few skills and only a minimal amount of training.
