Aliquot distributes Allergen-Check ELISA kits and rapid, on-site FlowThrough™ tests (along with swab kits) for use on a wide range of food allergens. Manufactured in Europe by Bio-Check(UK) and used by labs and food processors throughout the UK and North America, these tests are effective and efficient, designed to help you meet and exceed any local food regulations. The ELISA kits quantitatively detect allergens in fresh, processed and heated food products, as well as in surface and environmental swabs. They each use a simple 3-step, 60-minute sandwich assay format and contain all the reagents required for extraction and detection. The kits are easily automated for even greater testing efficiency. Click on each allergen for a detailed description and specification for each kit.
Some foods such as milk, eggs, tree nuts, cereals or crustaceans can act as potential allergens producing health disorders in certain individuals. Potential allergic ingredients must be declared in the label by the food manufacturers to comply with current legislations, implemented now in different areas such as Europe, US, Australia & New Zealand, Canada and Japan (Directive 2003/89/EC amending Directive 2000/13/EC, Food Allergen Labelling & Consumers Protection Act, Australian & New Zealand Food Standard Code, Guide to Food Labelling and Advertising and Food Sanitation Laws).
The PROTEON line is a group of ELISA kits designed to detect allergens in food: PROTEON-EGG (detection of ovomucoide to detect egg presence in food), PROTEONB- LACTOGLOBULIN (detection of β-lactoglobulin- whey protein- to detect the presence of milk in food), PROTEON- SOY (detection of soy proteins in food).PROTEON-WHEAT and PROTEON-PEA for detection of wheat and peat in dairy products, respectively. The ELISA kits quantitatively detect allergens in fresh, processed and heated food products, as well as in surface and environmental swabs. They each use a simple 3-step, 60-minute sandwich assay format and contain all the reagents required for extraction and detection. The kits are easily automated for even greater testing efficiency.
