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.

Peanut Allergen

The Peanut or Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea) is a legume and products nut-like fruits within protective shells. It is important to note that the Peanut is not a tree nut. Peanuts are a rich source of nutrients and are used widely throughout industry as an ingredient in many food products such as Asian dishes and bakery items. Peanuts contain proteins which trigger allergic reactions in people including anaphylaxis. For people with a peanut allergy, even minor exposure in the nano-gram range can cause reactions from mild skin rashes to fatal anaphylactic shock. 3M™ Peanut Protein Rapid Peanut can help prevent the release of contaminated product to the marketplace.
