Lateral flow device for the detection of Coconut residue in food, rinse waters and environmental swabs
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). AgraStrip® Coconut test kit offers food manufacturers a tool to prevent the release of product contaminated with this allergen.
The AgraStrip® Coconut kit is a ready-to-use lateral flow device supplied with all the consumables required to run 10 tests. Coconut residue can be detected at any stage of the production process from surfaces 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.
Each kit comes complete with strips, antibody coated incubation vials, extraction tubes, an extraction buffer, surface swabs and additional accessories.
