Soy Test Kits for Lab and On-Site Detection

The soybean (Glycine max) is a species of legume used for thousands of years. It contains a high amount of proteins, most of which are relatively heat-stable. 

Despite being one of the most common food allergens in young children, soy is a common ingredient in infant formulas. Typically, allergic reactions first appear in infants and children under the age of three. Fortunately, most of the affected children outgrow the allergy in adulthood. 

For those who remain allergic, avoiding the intake of soy completely is the only possibility to prevent potentially fatal allergic reactions.

Mandatory labeling of soybeans in food

Soy is one of the so-called “Big 8” of food allergens that fall under the labeling requirements of the U.S. Opens external link in new windowFDA – FALCPA (2004). It is also on the list of priority allergens according to Opens external link in new windowRegulation (EU) No 1169/201 in Europe. Hence, the presence of soy in foodstuffs must be clearly labeled in these and many other countries all over the world.

Fast and highly sensitive soy analysis

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



Lateral Flow Devices

The AgraStrip® Soy test kits are ready-to-use lateral flow devices (LFD) for on-site testing. These immunological tests allow a rapid analysis of a wide range of food samples within only 11 minutes (including extraction).

AgraStrip® LFDs represent a fast and simple qualitative strip test method in which specific antibodies labeled with colloidal gold are used for visual color development at a test and control zone.

The test kits come complete with strips, antibody coated incubation vials, extraction tubes, an extraction buffer, surface swabs and additional accessories.
