3M™ Cashew Allergen Kit
DETECTION OF CASHEW ALLERGEN IN FOOD, RINSE WATERS AND SWABS
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, an extraction buffer and quick guide
Cashew (Anacardium occidentale) is a tropical evergreen tree that produces the cashew seed and the cashew apple belonging to the family Anacardiaceae. Cashew nuts are used throughout the food industry as a whole food or as an ingredient for many finished products, and contain protein fractions which can trigger allergic reactions including potentially deadly anaphylaxis. As these toxic proteins are heat stable and retain their potency, it is important that food production facilities are thoroughly cleaned and checked prior to eliminate cross contamination issues in products that are free of these allergens. The 3M™ Cashew Protein Rapid Kit is a valuable tool to help prevent the release of contaminated product.
The 3M™ Cashew Protein Rapid Kit is a sensitive, ready to use lateral flow device for on-site routine testing for cashew proteins.
