AlerTox Sticks Walnut uses a combination of monoclonal antibodies against a major English/common walnut antigen, the 11 S globulin seed storage protein known as allergen Jug r 4 from Juglans regia. Alertox Sticks Walnut does NOT detect the antigens of cereals, legumes and other nuts, including pecan, black walnut, peanut, hazelnut, almond, macadamia, pistachio, cashew, brazil nut and coconut.
The LOD (limit of detection) of AlerTox Sticks Walnut is 2.25 ppm of walnut protein. The range of detection (ROD) is 2.25-100,000 ppm.
PLEASE NOTE: English/common Walnut (Juglans regia), pecan (Carya illinoinensis) and black walnut (Juglans nigra) are closely related nuts of trees belonging to the family Juglandaceae. However, the test shows no cross-reactivity to pecan or black walnut (Juglans nigra). The test is 100% specific to English/common walnut..
