RIDA®QUICK Gliadin can be used for gluten detection on surfaces for hygiene control (swab test), in cleansing waters, and 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 very high gluten concentrations (> 10000 mg/kg gluten).
The identical test strip RIDA®QUICK Gliadin (Art. No. R7003)
- has been approved as AOAC-OMA 2015.16 for corn based food matrices using Cocktail (patented) or ethanol extraction
- has AOAC PTM (101702) for swabbing and cleansing water
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. No. 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 test strips.
