Food allergens present a persistent challenge for individuals with allergies, making it crucial for food producers to accurately detect potential allergen contamination. Employing reliable test kits ensures the safety of consumers and compliance with regulatory standards.
Romer Labs provides a comprehensive portfolio of allergen test kits designed for both qualitative (AgraStrip®) and quantitative (AgraQuant®) analyses of food allergens. These versatile tests cater to various applications, covering all phases of the food production process:
- Testing of raw materials and finished food samples
- Analysis of rinse waters (integral to cleaning validation)
- Detection of allergens in environmental swab samples
Our allergen test kits are designed for seamless integration into routine analyses as part of an allergen management plan, aligning with HACCP principles. The user-friendly test format ensures a streamlined workflow for both on-site and laboratory settings.
In light of global regulations concerning food allergens (e.g., Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011; U.S. FDA – FALCPA 2004), it is imperative to properly label food products. Our test kits support producers in fulfilling legal requirements, guaranteeing the safety and compliance of their products.
Safeguard Your Business and Brand
The quality of a test kit is intrinsically linked to food safety. At Romer Labs, we utilize an extensive range of monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies to ensure adherence to the highest quality standards. Our highly sensitive tests are capable of detecting allergens in concentrations as low as ppm or even ppb levels. Prompt identification of allergen contamination can mitigate the risk of expensive allergen-related recalls, which can lead to substantial financial losses and reputational damage.
