Almond Test Kits for Lab and On-Site Detection

Almonds are the seeds of a widely cultivated tree belonging to the rosaceae family. Even though the fruit of the almond is a drupe and not a true nut with a hard shell around the seeds, they belong among major tree nuts that can cause a potentially fatal food allergy.

For those allergic to almonds, the consumption of almonds or almond-containing foods must be avoided strictly. As cross-contamination can occur during the production process, checks are necessary for almond residues in food. Consequently, the food industry is required to use sensitive test kits to ensure their products meet the highest levels of food safety.

Fast and highly sensitive almond analysis

The Romer Labs almond test kit portfolio covers ELISAs and LFDs for the quantitative and qualitative analysis of almonds in environmental samples, rinse waters and finished food products.

AgraStrip® Lateral Flow Devices

The AgraStrip® Almond test kit is a ready-to-use lateral flow device (LFD) for on-site testing. This immunological test allows a rapid analysis of a wide range of food samples within only 11 minutes (including extraction).

AgraStrip® LFDs represent a fast and simple qualitative strip test method in which specific antibodies labeled with colloidal gold are used for visual color development at a test and control zone.

The test kit comes complete with strips, antibody coated incubation vials, extraction tubes, an extraction buffer, surface swabs and additional accessories.

AgraQuant® ELISA Tests

The AgraQuant® Almond test kit is an accurate and reliable enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) in a quantitative format. Results are measured with a specific ELISA reader, such as the StatFax® or the BioTek® reader.

The AgraQuant® Plus Almond test kit is specifically designed for a more efficient workflow. This test format uses unique extraction capsules that speed up the extraction of allergenic proteins, especially from processed matrices, to barely 1 minute. Incubation times of the assay are reduced to 3 x 10 minutes, leading to a total assay time of 30 minutes for up to 38 samples.

Both AgraQuant® Almond test kits are sandwich ELISAs in a ready-to-use format to reduce handling errors and come with a set of 5 standards, extraction solution /capsules, an antibody coated plate, a wash buffer, a conjugate, a substrate and a stop solution.
