Test Kit for the Accurate Detection of Ovalbumin

Despite their nutritional value, eggs represent a significant health issue for allergic individuals. Proteins from egg yolk have only minor allergenicity, but many proteins from the egg white are known to be allergenic.

In addition to lysozyme, ovomucoid, ovotransferrin and livetin, ovalbumin represents the main fraction of the egg white allergens.

Egg powder as well as pure ovalbumin is often used as a fining reagent for wine. For allergic persons the consumption of ovalbumin represents a critical problem. Very low levels of the allergen are enough to trigger allergic reactions, which may lead to anaphylactic shock in severe cases.

Fast and highly sensitive ovalbumin analysis

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

AgraQuant® ELISA Tests

The AgraQuant® Ovalbumin 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 buffer, a wash buffer, a conjugate, a substrate and a stop solution.

Model:

AgraQuant® Ovalbumin (10002092)

AgraQuant® Ovalbumin (10002092)

The AgraQuant® Ovalbumine is a sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) designed for the quantitative detection of the egg protein ovalbumine in food samples. Samples can vary from raw to processed foods, from environmental swabs to rinse water. This product is intended for laboratory use.
