Assay Development

Working directly with you, we develop specific methods that are applicable to your unique food allergen needs. Two years ago, there was no method available to detect coconut protein in foods. This created a problem for food manufactures in the US because coconut is considered a tree nut by the FDA and as such, requires companies to label products that contain coconut as an ingredient, even at trace levels. We were approached by a large food manufacturer to develop a test that could detect the coconut protein down to 2ppm in their CIP wash. We delivered the first product to their manufacturing site within 90 days after the initial agreement was signed. Since that time we have developed 5 minute testing kits for a variety of allergens to meet our various customers’ allergen HACCP needs.
