Allergens LS

Food allergens represent an ever-present risk for individuals with allergies. Using reliable test kits to accurately detect potential allergen contaminations has become a critical necessity for food producers.

Romer Labs offers the most complete portfolio of allergen test kits for the qualitative (AgraStrip®) and quantitative (AgraQuant®) analysis of food allergens. These tests can be used for different applications, and cover all steps in the food production process:

  • Testing of raw materials and finished food samples
  • Analysis of rinse waters (as part of cleaning validation)
  • Detection of allergens in environmental swab samples

The allergen test kits can be easily implemented into routine analysis as part of an allergen management plan within a HACCP-concept. The simple test format makes it easy for a smooth workflow to be maintained on-site as well as in the lab.

Protect your business and brand


Food safety is directly linked to the quality of the test kit. Romer Labs uses a broad range of monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies to meet the highest quality demands. Our sensitive tests can detect allergens in the low ppm or even ppb range. Early detection of allergen contaminations can prevent unnecessary and costly allergen-related recalls which often are associated with significant financial losses and a tarnished reputation.

Romer Labs provides the following test kits for the detection of allergens:


AgraQuant® ELISA Tests

 

AgraQuant® test kits are accurate and reliable enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) in a quantitative format. Results are measured with a specific ELISA reader, such as the StatFax® or the BioTek® reader.

These ELISA test kits are the ideal solution for a parallel measurement of multiple samples with assay times of as low as 60 minutes for up to 37 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, a conjugate, a substrate and a stop solution.

AgraQuant® Plus ELISA Tests

The AgraQuant® Plus test kits are accurate and reliable enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) specifically designed for a more efficient workflow. This quantitative test format uses unique extraction capsules that speed up the extraction of allergenic proteins, especially from processed matrices, to barely 1 minute.

Incubation times of the assay are reduced to 3 x 10 minutes, leading to a total assay time of 30 minutes for up to 37 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, extraction capsules, an antibody coated plate, a conjugate, a substrate and a stop solution.
