Our food allergen ELISA kits use an innovative extraction solution which allows testing labs and manufacturers to reliably detect allergens in raw & processed foods. These ELISA kits are 10 lab validated. The kits are manufactured by Morinaga Institute and are used by government agencies, including the FDA.
One of the main advantages of the kits is its ability to detect allergens in processed foods. These processed foods can be subjected to processing treatments such as heating, pressurization, sterilization etc. during which proteins contained in the food are often denatured in various manners. The extraction buffer contains surfactant and reducing agents in order to extract such proteins.
