The Hook Test Advantage

The hook effect or prozone effect is well-recognised immunologic phenomenon where the effectiveness of antibody based assays can impaired when there are high concentration of the target allergen. This can produce false negative results for highly contaminated samples 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.


Hazelnut Allergen

Hazelnut (Corylus avellane) also known as filbert or cob nut, belongs to a group of tree nuts which contain proteins which can trigger allergic reactions in some people. Hazelnuts are used within the food industry as an ingredient in many products including bakery items and cereals. If the production area in which these products are not cleaned appropriately, Hazelnut residue may still be present, potentially contaminating products which claim to be free of this allergen.
