Peanut Test Kits

Peanuts (often called groundnuts) are legumes that produce nut-like fruits within protective shells. They are widely used in food and feed and appear in various forms on our table, such as in Asian dishes, bakery goods, peanut butter or roasted as a snack.

Peanuts are a highly nutritious source of food as they contain high amounts of oil and proteins. Many such proteins in peanuts are known to be allergenic. For people suffering from a peanut allergy, even minor exposure in the nano-gram range can cause immune reactions from mild skin rashes to fatal anaphylactic shock.

As cross-contaminations may occur during food processing, 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 peanut analysis

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

AgraStrip® Lateral Flow Devices

The AgraStrip® Peanut 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® Peanut 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 Peanut 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® Peanut 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.
