 Allergens - Lab Test kits

Bio-Check (UK)’s Allergen-Check ELISA kits cover 14 legislated allergens

010.jpgThere are 18 allergen-specific kits in the range, which are available in 48 and 96 well format. All the Allergen-Check™ ELISAs contain extraction solution concentrates in the kit. The prepared sample extracts can be tested in all kits except the casein, crustacea, fish and milk kits which have different extractions.  The ELISA procedure shares a common approach for all kits, with 20+20+20 minute incubations, allowing the potential for automation. The kits are all highly sensitive and accurate with the following Limits of Quantitation (LOQ) and Limit of Detection (LOD):
