RIDA®QUICK Gliadin can be used as a swab test for the gluten determination on surfaces in the hygiene control and for the qualitative detection of gliadin / gluten in raw material and processed food. The test has been developed for the detection of low amounts of gluten (contamination). No high-dose-hook-effect is observed at high concentrations. However, the red target band may smear at high gluten concentrations.
The official type I method for gluten determination according to the Codex Alimentarius is an ELISA which uses the R5 antibody (Mendez). This requirement is fulfilled by RIDASCREEN® Gliadin test (Art. Nr. R7001).
The RIDA®QUICK Gliadin test strips also use the R5 antibody and show a good correlation with the official method, the R5-ELISA RIDASCREEN® Gliadin. R-Biopharm AG is the only company, that is allowed to use the R5 antibody for the test strips. The R5 dip stick RIDA®QUICK Gliadin has been approved as AOAC-OMA.
