The Almond ELISA Kit is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the quantitative or qualitative detection of Almond. This monoclonal antibody (MAb)-based assay provides a highly sensitive and specific method for the quantification of Almond presence/contamination within a variety of food matrices. It may also be used for simple “yes-no” qualitative assessments. The kit enables a facile and quantitative measure of almond while limiting the potential for false positive signals often associated with polyclonal antibody (PAb)-based ELISA kits. The target indicator protein is a major almond allergen and was selected based on its strong resistance to food processing and high abundance in the nut meat.
Other matrices may also be suitable for use with the Almond ELISA kit. Contact us (email@example.com) for assistance to determine whether your matrix-of-interest has been validated (cross reactivity & recovery). An internal validation using an almond-spiked sample is recommended to ensure that almond is efficiently recovered before qualitative or quantitative results are obtained from the kit
