ALLERGENThe application of reference materials in analytical chemistry for quality control purposes is well recognized and highly recommended by many international and professional bodies across the world. However, certain reference materials have been lacking in their availability or applicability and this has definitely been true of allergens reference materials - until now.
Analysis of allergens in foodstuffs is generally carried out by ELISA kits. These are quick, easy to use and inexpensive. They also universally suffer a major drawback – that the results from one ELISA kit cannot be compared to another. The food testing industry, for many years, has been crying out for appropriate allergens reference materials. Fapas, the proficiency testing arm of Fera, has now produced our first allergens reference materials. The allergens are for gluten, egg and milk in a base matrix of cake mix.
