GlutenTox Stick Plus for Reader
Qualitative & Quantitative Analysis of Gluten in One Strip
GlutenTox Sticks Plus for Reader provides both a qualitative and quantitative result for gluten in just half an hour from sample inoculation. It is a new immunochromatographic test that allows the detection and quantification of gluten content in all kinds of foods (from raw materials to processed foods and / or heat processed food), beverages and other consumer products. It can detect toxic fractions of the prolamins of wheat, rye, barley and some varieties of immunogenic oats that can trigger the immune response in coeliac patients.
For all matrices being tested the gluten must be extracted from the samples for analysis, and is therefore one of the most critical points of the testing process. The GlutenTox Stick Plus kit includes the Universal Gluten Extraction Solution (UGES) which is suited to all types of food samples thanks to the combination of denaturing agents, reducing agents and solubilisers. For samples containing polyphenols, tannins or antioxidants a special additive must be added to the extraction process. This additive acts as a chelating agent of proteins, preventing the interference of the compunds in the extraction process. Food rich in polyphenols or tannins include chocolate, tea, coffee, wine, purple corn and corn fibre, soy, berries. The most common antioxidants in cosmetic products are Vitamins A, C and E, carotenes, carotenoids etc.
A visual qualitative result using the kit is available within 15 minutes of sample inoculation.
