The project will take place between 2018 and 2020. One of the project’s targets is developing a new test for antibiotics detection in live animals.
ZEULAB launchs PROTEON DUO MILK EXPRESS, an easy, rapid, and reliable test for dual detection of β-lactoglobulin and casein in foodstuff, rinse water and surfaces. Specially designed for the food industry and related businesses.
Main characteristics of the test:
- Double rapid test: milk and its by-products detection in 10 min.
- Versatile: valid for highly processed food.
- Simple:no previous training or additional equipment are required
- Economic: 2 detections with only one rapid dip-stick test.
Analytical methods are needed for a correct management and control of potential allergen cross-contamination, as well as the reinforcement of the quality of the manufacturing and cleaning processes.
According to European regulation No 1169/2011, it is mandatory to report specific allergens present in a product.
Direct methods are recommended because they allow the detection of specific allergenic proteins, avoiding false positives, because they are able to distinguish accurately the presence of a particular allergen.
Management of allergens in the food industry is not a new system, but it is already an integral part of the food security control. An effective allergen management system should take into account all operations, from the supply of raw materials to production, handling or packaging.
