AlerTox Sticks Fish is an immunochromatographic rapid test for qualitative detection of fish antigen in food, kitchens and production facilities.
Designed especially to help manufacturers keep their items free of antigens that may cause allergic reactions, AlerTox® Sticks are a rapid, user-friendly test for the detection and qualification of main food allergens with no lab equipment or scientific knowledge required.
AlerTox Sticks Fish uses a combination of antibodies against tropomyosin, a major protein antigen found in striated muscle of bony fishes. The test also detects a related antigen of cartilaginous fishes (sharks and sturgeons), though with a significantly lower sensitivity.
Fish proteins are among the major food allergens. Due to an increase in the use of seafood in the food industry, consumers with fish allergies are at growing risk of serious reactions or even death due to mislabelled or undeclared fish-derived products.Kit contents:
