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 kit comes complete with strips, extraction tubes, an extraction buffer and quickstart guide. 


Coconut Allergens

Coconuts are drupes from the coconut trees (Cocos nucifera) commonly mistaken for tree nuts. Allergies to coconut is rare, however all documented cases have included anaphylactic reactions, which can be lethal when not promptly and properly treated. Its emergence as an allergen source of importance comes from the inclusion by the USFDA in the group of allergens that must be declared in product labes ('the big 8', in which it is listed as a tree nut). 3M™ Coconut Protein Rapid test kit offers food manufacturers a tool to prevent the release of product contaminated with this allergen.
