The ELISA SYSTEMS® Lupin Residue assay is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) that may be used to screen food products and environmental samples for the presence of Lupin material.
Please note: A special extraction solution is required for samples containing Polyphenols, including Dark Chocolate, Wine, Fruit Juices, Herbs, and Tannins. (Product code: ESADDSOL).
The ELISA SYSTEMS® Lupin Residue Detection Kit test is based on the sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbant assay format. The food sample is first subjected to an extraction procedure and then tested by ELISA for the presence of lupin residues. The assay detects lupin flour proteins. The results may be quantified by comparing the test results against results obtained from protein standards supplied in the kit.
