    More allergens, more sample types

    Comprehensive portfolio of 20 ELISA assays offers detection of both processed and unprocessed target allergen proteins. It works with a wide range of sample types, including clean-in-place (CIP) final rinse water, environmental swab samples, food ingredients and processed food products.

    Drive efficiency and higher testing volume

    One single extracted sample can be used across 17 assays, saving time and effort while increasing output. For walnut, pecan and crustacean proteins, a different extraction buffer is required, yet the protocol remains the same.

    Reduce the risk of error

    Consistency is key to getting accurate, trustworthy results. Our straightforward universal extraction protocol streamlines testing for multiple analytes, and reduces the risk of human error.

Each ELISA kit contains:

  • 96 removable antibody coated wells
  • 3M Allergen conjugate
  • 3M Allergen standard concentrate
  • 3M Diluent
  • 3M Wash solution
  • 3M Extraction buffer
  • 3M Chromogenic Substrate Solution
  • 3M Stop Solution

A simpler testing workflow for faster results

Test multiple sample types including environmental swabs, CIP final rinse water, raw ingredients and finished food products.

  • Reagent preparation

    Reagent preparation

    Reagents are simple to prepare. By only preparing the amount of reagents needed for the number of samples that will be tested at once you can minimise waste.

  • Sample preparation

    Sample preparation

    Samples are prepared for protein extraction using the pre-warmed 3M extraction buffer and following our universal extraction protocol.

  • The ELISA procedure

    The ELISA procedure

    The ELISA procedure follows a series of steps to provide results for analysis using a four parameter logistic curve.
