Accurately test for gluten residue in ingredients, finished products and surfaces.
GlutenTox® Sticks PLUS (KT-5340) are immunochromatographic test sticks for quick detection of the toxic fraction of gluten found in foods, beverages and on surfaces. They incorporate the anti-gliadin antibody G12, which detects the toxic 33mer peptide, the primary initiator of the inflammatory response to gluten in Celiac Disease patients.
GlutenTox Sticks PLUS are easy to use, but they do require some basic lab equipment (pipettes and tubes, agitators, a centrifuge, etc). Tests should be performed in a dedicated part of your facility.
