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.
