Test Kit for the Accurate Detection of Ovalbumin

Despite their nutritional value, eggs represent a significant health issue for allergic individuals. Proteins from egg yolk have only minor allergenicity, but many proteins from the egg white are known to be allergenic.

In addition to lysozyme, ovomucoid, ovotransferrin and livetin, ovalbumin represents the main fraction of the egg white allergens.

Egg powder as well as pure ovalbumin is often used as a fining reagent for wine. For allergic persons the consumption of ovalbumin represents a critical problem. Very low levels of the allergen are enough to trigger allergic reactions, which may lead to anaphylactic shock in severe cases.

Mandatory labeling of egg residues in food

To protect consumers from the potentially fatal consequences of egg consumption, allergen labeling is required by law in many countries. Egg is regulated for example by Regulation (EU) (Opens external link in new windowRegulation (EU) No 1169/201) and the U.S. (Opens external link in new windowFDA – FALCPA 2004).

Fast and highly sensitive ovalbumin analysis

The Romer Labs test kit portfolio covers a highly sensitive ELISA method for the quantitative analysis of ovalbumin in environmental samples, rinse waters and finished food products.




The AgraQuant® Ovalbumin test kit is an accurate and reliable enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) in a quantitative format. Results are measured with a specific ELISA reader, such as the StatFax® or the BioTek® reader.

This ELISA test kit is the ideal solution for a parallel measurement of multiple samples with assay times of as low as 60 minutes for up to 38 samples.

AgraQuant® allergen test kits are sandwich ELISAs in a ready-to-use format to reduce handling errors and come with a set of 5 standards, an antibody coated plate, an extraction buffer, a wash buffer, a conjugate, a substrate and a stop solution.
