SureFood® ALLERGEN 4plex EU NUTS
Art. No.: S3404
The SureFood® ALLERGEN 4plex EU NUTS is a real-time PCR for the direct, qualitative detection and differentiation of
- almond (Prunus dulcis),
- cashew (Anacardium occidentale),
- pistachio (Pistacia vera),
- peanut (Arachis hypogaea),
- hazelnut (Corylus avellana),
- walnut (Juglans regia),
- pecan (Carya illinoinensis),
- brazil nut (Bertholletia excelsa) and
- macadamia (Macadamia tetraphylla)
ccording to directive (EC) 1169/2011 in food.
The real-time PCR assay can be performed with commonly used real-time PCR instruments, equipped for detection of four fluorescence emissions at the channels FAM, VIC/HEX, ROX and Cy5 at the same time. The technical verification of instruments was performed on Agilent AriaDx, Bio-Rad CFX96Dx, R-Biopharm RIDA®CYCLER, Roche LightCycler® 480 II and Qiagen Rotor-Gene Q.
|Test format||100 reactions|
|Sample preparation||For DNA preparation the use of SureFood® PREP Advanced (Art. No. S1053), protocol 1 or SureFast® Mag PREP Food (Art. No. F1060) is recommended.|
|LOD (Detection Limit)||The detection limit is ≤ 1 mg allergenic substance / kg food (ppm) using SureFood® PREP Advanced. The LOD was determined using laboratory reference material SureFood® QUANTARD Allergen 40 (containing 40 mg/kg nuts in a corn flour matrix).|
The pecan detection system shows 100% cross reactivity to shagbark hickory (Carya ovata).
