AlerTox Sticks are rapid tests for allergen detection in food, drinks, and on surfaces for internal Quality Control. They are designed specifically to help manufacturers keep their items free of antigens that may cause allergic reactions. These user-friendly tests are for the detection and qualification of main food allergens without the need for lab equipment or scientific knowledge.
They have industrial applications for allergen detection in food, food quality control, trace allergen contamination in food, liquid, and surfaces and implementation and fulfilment of HACCP, ISO 2200, BRC, and IFS compliance.
AlerTox Sticks Beta-Lactoglobulin is based on a lateral flow immunoassay and uses antibodies specific to BLG. This protein is a member of the lipocalin family and comprises approximately 10% of the dry weight of defatted milk proteins. The test is able to detect BLG residues in a large variety of food matrices and also in environmental samples. The assay is specific for BLG and does not cross-react with nor recognizes other milk proteins such as casein.
