bioavid Lateral Flow Sesame incl. Hook line
Art. No.: BLH709-15
The Lateral Flow Sesame (Art. No. BLH709-15) with included hook line from bioavid is an immunochromatographic test for the sensitive and qualitative detection of sesame residues on surfaces (e.g. swab test for the hygiene control in food production lines), in cleansing and process water (CIP water) and food samples. The integrated hook line prevents false negative interpretation of high positive samples.
All for swabbing now included in the kit!
Sesame seeds (Sesamum indicum) are used as raw or roasted ingredients in many different foods.
The allergen can be present as an ingredient or as a contamination in raw and cooked products. According to the regulation (EU) No. 1169/2011 , Sesam and products thereof must be declared on food labels. Similar regulations exist e.g. in Canada and Australia.
Sesame seed food allergy is an increasingly recognized health burden, the symptoms vary from allergic eczema to life threatening anaphylactic reactions. Until now, seven different proteins of sesame were identified as allergens (Ses i 1-7). The only effective treatment to protect sensitized patients from allergic symptoms is a strict avoidance of sesame containing food.
Dip sticks are an easy to use method and provide a fast and reliable analysis. The application of our bioavid dip sticks is very simple and can be handled by untrained personell. All bioavid test kits can be stored at room temperature and therefore they are an ideal tool for direct testing in production facilities. The bioavid test kits contain the complete equipment for the analysis.
