The Crustacea ELISA kit is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the quantitative or qualitative detection of Crustacea. This monoclonal antibody (MAb)-based assay provides a highly sensitive and specific method for the quantification of Crustacea 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 Crustacea without the false positive signals often associated with polyclonal antibody (PAb)-based ELISA kits. The target indicator protein is the major Crustacea allergen tropomyosin, which was selected based on its strong resistance to food processing and high abundance.
