RIDA® QUICK Gliadin x 25 det R-Biopharm
Para la detección de gluten en superficies para el control de higiene y para la detección cualitativa de gliadina/gluten en materias primas.
Intended use: RIDA QUICK Gliadin can be used as a swab test for the gluten determination on surfaces in the hygiene control and for the qualitative detection of gliadin/gluten in raw material.
The test should only be used for the detection of small amounts of gluten (contaminations).
No hook-effect is observed at high concentrations.
The gliadin/gluten determination can be carried out for numerous raw materials after a simple ethanol extraction.
Further applications, e.g. for processed foods and chocolate, are available upon request.
The use of wheat flour and gluten in foodstuff is extremely common because of their useful effects on e.g. texture, moisture retention and flavour.
Gluten is a mixture of prolamin and glutelin proteins present in wheat, rye and barley. Coeliac disease is a permanent intolerance to gluten that results in damage to the small intestine and is reversible when gluten is avoided by diet.
The Codex Alimentarius Commission has stipulated in the Codex Standard for Foods for Special Dietary Use for Persons Intolerant to Gluten (CODEX STAN 118-1979) the limit value for gluten-free food at 20 mg/kg gluten.
The official type I method for gluten determination according to the Codex Alimentarius is an ELISA which uses the R5 antibody (Mendez).
This requirement is fulfilled by the sandwich ELISA RIDASCREEN Gliadin (Art. Nr. R7001).
The test strips of RIDAQUICK Gliadin show a good correlation with the official method, the R5-ELISA RIDASCREEN Gliadin.
