Does your facility work with tree nuts?
If so, you may benefit from our newest offering. Emport LLC is pleased to stock the first kit from OnSite® Food Safety, the OnSite® Allergen Multiplex Tree Nut.
This rapid lateral flow test allows users to simultaneously detect almond, cashew, hazelnut, pecan, pistachio, and walnut contamination on surfaces and in rinsewater. It is a natural fit within Emport LLC’s catalog of easy, accurate allergen management test kits.
The OnSite® Allergen Multiplex Tree Nut rapid test requires no equipment and provides results in less than 20 minutes. The test is sensitive enough to detect as little as 1-5 mg/kg (ppm) of tree nut protein in rinsewater or 10μg/100 cm2 on surfaces. If any or all of the targeted proteins are present in sufficient quantity, the test cassette will display a red test line alongside the internal control line. Detailed validation data is available on request.

Who should test surfaces for nuts — and why?
Careful planning and daily vigilance are necessary to safeguard the millions of people worldwide who live with food allergies. In the United States and abroad, government regulations frequently require careful management of common allergens. In addition, voluntary but popular GFSI food safety schemes require comprehensive allergen management. The OnSite® Allergen Multiplex Tree Nut kit is an important daily tool for food companies and commercial kitchens alike.
OnSite® Allergen Multiplex Tree Nut is an affordable part of any allergen management plan. Commercial kitchens who have allergen-free dining stations or otherwise want to ensure they have thorough cleaning protocols can quickly check their surfaces before or after a shift. Food and beverage producing facilities can reduce the variety of different kits they stock, and increase their protection against improper cleaning.
This kit pairs easily with the single-nut rapid tests and/or general protein swabs from Emport LLC’s catalog, as well as with third party laboratory testing. For more information, visit the product page or get in touch.
