Lateral flow device for the detection of ß-Lactoglobulin residue in food, rinse waters and environmental swabs.
Milk is an ingredient used throughout the food manufacturing industry as an ingredient for a variety of products such as cookies and sausages. Very low amounts of milk can cause allergic reactions including anaphylaxis, particularly in infants. Approximately 20% of bovine milk proteins are whey proteins, with the main component being ß-Lactoglobulin. To help prevent a product recall due to cross contamination in the manufacturing area, quality assurance personnel can use the AgraStrip® β-Lactoglobulin test kit.
The AgraStrip® ß-Lactoglobulin kit is a ready-to-use lateral flow device supplied with all the consumables required to run 10 tests. ß-Lactoglobulin 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.
Each test kit comes complete with strips, antibody coated incubation vials, extraction tubes, an extraction buffer, surface swabs and additional accessories.
