Fish Test Kits - Accurate Detection of Fish Residues

Part of the human diet for thousands of years, fish is considered important for a healthy diet due to its high content of unsaturated fatty acids. But, predominantly in regions with a high consumption of fish like Scandinavia, Japan or Mediterranean countries, fish allergies represent a significant problem. In most cases, such allergy is induced by the low-molecular muscle protein parvalbumin. This protein is characterized by its high heat resistance and stability against denaturing agents and proteolytic enzymes.

For people suffering from a fish allergy, hidden fish proteins in food are a critical problem. Any intake of fish must be strictly avoided to prevent potentially fatal allergic reactions.

Finned fish and shellfish are not from the same family, so being allergic to one does not necessarily mean that an allergic individual must avoid both.

Fast and highly sensitive fish analysis

The Romer Labs test kit portfolio covers a highly sensitive ELISA method for the quantitative analysis of fish residues in environmental samples, rinse waters and finished food products.

AgraQuant® ELISA Tests

The AgraQuant® Fish 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.

This ELISA test kit is the ideal solution for a parallel measurement of multiple samples with assay times of as low as 60 minutes for up to 38 samples.

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

Models:

AgraQuant® Fish (10002083)

AgraQuant® Fish (10002083)

The AgraQuant® Fish is a sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) designed for the quantitative analysis of parvalbumin, the major allergen in fish, in food samples. Samples can vary from raw to processed foods, from environmental swabs to rinse water. This product is intended for laboratory use.
