The ELISA SYSTEMS® Buckwheat Protein Residue assay is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) that may be used to screen appropriate food products for the presence of Buckwheat protein material caused by cross-contamination with Buckwheat products and residues. This assay is a rapid and reliable test which significantly reduces the time required to screen appropriate food products for the presence of Buckwheat residues.This assay is based on comparison to Buckwheat Flour Protein Concentrations.
The ELISA SYSTEMS® Buckwheat Residue Detection Kit is based on the sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbant assay format. The food sample is first subjected to an extraction procedure and then assayed by ELISA method for the presence of buckwheat allergens. The results may be quantified by comparing the test results against results obtained from protein standards supplied in the kit.
