The 3M™ Fish Protein Rapid Kit is intended for screening for the presence of fish proteins in clean-in-place (CIP) final rinse water, environmental swab samples, food ingredients and processed food products.
Results visible at 11 ± 1 minute after application of the sample
Rapid, qualitative immunochromatographic lateral flow test cartridges designed for the detection of allergenic food proteins
Designed to detect both processed and unprocessed allergen proteins
Test can accommodate environmental swab, CIP rinse water and food samples
The 3M™ Fish Protein Rapid Kit utilizes a lateral flow device (LFD) that is an immunochromatographic test method utilizing antibodies which are specific for the detection of fish proteins.
Positive results are visualized by the presence of three lines: a control line, a hook line and a test line, when the fish protein is present in the range of concentrations from a lower level of 1 ppm. This limit may vary depending on the matrix tested. The upper limit of detection has not been determined for specific fish species.
Samples containing high amounts of fish protein may result in an invalid test which will result in the absence of the hook line and/or test line.
