Detection of Cashew / Pistachio Proteins

AgraStrip® Cashew / Pistachio Test Kit

Lateral flow device for the detection of Cashew & Pistachio residue in food, rinse waters and environmental swabs.

Cashew (Anacardium occidentale) and the Pistachio (Pistacia vera) trees belong to the same family Anacardiaceae. Both nuts are used throughout the food industry as a whole food or as an ingredient for many finished products. Both nuts have 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 AgraStrip Cashew / Pistachio kit is a valuable tool to help prevent the release of contaminated product.

The AgraStrip® Cashew / Pistachio kit is a ready-to-use lateral flow device supplied with all the consumables required to run 10 tests. Cashew & Pistachio residue can be detected at any stage of the production process from surface tests to ingredient testing and then finished product analysis. The lateral flow device provides a positive or negative result within 11 minutes, enabling corrective actions to be implemented quickly when required.

  • Sensitive – detects a low level of Cashew and Pistachio residue
  • Visual result – no expensive equipment required
  • User friendly – minimal training of staff
  • Room temperature & long shelf life


Each test kit comes complete with strips, antibody coated incubation vials, extraction tubes, an extraction buffer, surface swabs and additional accessories.
