3M™ Almond Allergen Rapid Kit
DETECTION OF ALMOND ALLERGENS IN FOOD, RINSE WATERS AND SWABS
The 3M™ Almond Protein Rapid Kits is a sensitive, ready to use lateral flow device for on-site routine testing for almond protein.
Allergens can be detected at any stage of the production process from ingredient testing through to finished product analysis. The lateral flow device provides hygiene test result within 11 minutes, enabling corrective actions to be implemented quickly when required.
The Hook Test Advantage
The hook effect or prozone effect is well-recognised phenomenon where high levels of antigen/allergen can produce false negative results in immunoassays. This may cause food processors to release product that actually contains dangerous levels of allergens that pose a high risk to allergy sufferers. The 3M Allergen kits have an additional Hook Line detection system in their strips to identify this problem, providing great confidence and security in your allergen reporting.
Each test kit comes complete with strips, extraction tubes and extraction buffer.
Almond (Prunus dulcis) is considered as a tree nut although almond belongs to the family of Rosaceae that also includes apple, pear, peach, cherry, plum, nectarine, apricot, and strawberry. Severity of almond-induced allergic reactions ranges from slight oral allergy syndrome (itching at the mouth and/or tongue soon after chewing and ingesting the fruit) to severe, it is one of the major three tree nuts that can cause a potentially fatal anaphylactic reaction in some people. Almonds are used as an ingredient in many food products such as breakfast cereals, and may be used in the same area as products which claim to be free of Almond residue. Cross contamination in such food manufacturing areas is an important food safety concern and preventative measures must be in place. The 3M™ Almond Protein Rapid kit is a tool for food manufacturer to prevent the release of contaminated product.
