Hygiena AlerTox® Sticks – B-Lactoglobulin Allergen Detection Datasheet

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.
