Lupin Test Kits for Lab and On-Site Detection

Lupins are common garden flowers. The legume seeds of some types of lupin can be ground into lupin flour which is often used in bread, pasta, cakes and pastries.

Although an allergy to lupin is quite rare, it does happen. In addition, some peanut allergic individuals may also react to lupin-containing food due to the botanical relationship between peanut and lupin.

The cross-contamination of food preparations during production processes is a practical reality. The food industry must use sensitive lupin detection tests in order to protect allergic individuals from the fatal consequences of lupin intake.

Mandatory labeling of lupin in food

Lupin can be the cause of severe allergic reactions especially for those suffering from a peanut allergy. The only treatment is a strict and lifelong avoidance of lupin. To protect consumers from the potentially fatal consequences of lupin consumption, allergen labeling is required by law in many countries. Lupin is regulated for example in Europe by Opens external link in new windowRegulation (EU) No 1169/201.

Fast and highly sensitive lupin analysis

The Romer Labs lupin test kit portfolio covers ELISAs and LFDs for the quantitative and qualitative analysis of lupin in environmental samples, rinse waters and finished food products.
