Romer Labs has released two test kits for gluten. The AgraStrip Gluten G12 is a lateral flow device for on-site factory testing and the AgraQuant Gluten G12 is an ELISA for quantitative testing in the laboratory.
The test kits use Romer Labs’ gluten detection technology, which employs a next-generation antibody called G12. The method targets the most immunotoxic proteins for those intolerant to gluten.
The G12 antibody is suitable for processed food such as biscuits or baby food, as it determines the pathogenic component of the sample, regardless of whether the ingredients have been modified during processing.
The AgraStrip kit has an adjustable cut-off level for qualitative screening at either 5, 10 or 20 ppm gluten while the AgraQuant ELISA quantitates levels of gluten between 4 and 200 ppm.
