Companies producing Non-Dairy products should ensure their raw and finished products have not been contaminated with milk protein during manufacture, to prevent possible allergic responses in susceptible individuals.
We have two test kits available : Beta Lactoglobulin and Casein.
Beta-Lactoglobulin is the major whey protein in ruminants and pigs.
Human breast milk appears to be devoid of Beta-Lactoglobulin.
Human infants can develop an allergenic response to cow milk proteins.
Beta-Lactoglobulin is the primary antigen that stimulates immune hypersensitivity in human infants.
Symptoms may range from a similarity to lactose intolerance to severe reactions.
The ELISA SYSTEMS Beta Lactoglobulin Residue assay is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay that may be used to screen food products and environmental samples for the presence of this potential allergen caused by cross contamination with Dairy Products and raw materials.
Products where whey has been significantly removed, such as cheese, may not be suitable for this kit as the estimated level of milk material will be lower. In these cases, our Casein kits may be more suitable. Please discuss this with your ELISA SYSTEMS representative.
Kit Controls Supplied
0.0ppm, 0.1ppm, 0.25ppm, 0.50ppm and 1.0 ppm Beta Lactoglobulin Protein
Time for testing an extracted sample is approximately 40 minutes
