GlutenTox® Sticks PLUS (KT-5340 / KIT3005) is a semi-quantitative lateral flow test designed to detect the toxic fraction of gluten found in foods and beverages and on surfaces. The kit incorporates the anti-gliadin antibody G12, which detects the toxic 33mer peptide, the primary initiator of the inflammatory response to gluten in Celiac Disease patients.
While GlutenTox Sticks PLUS are easy to use, they do require some basic lab equipment (pipettes and tubes, agitators, centrifuge and/or thermostatic bath) and 20-60 minutes.
The detection limit of GlutenTox Sticks PLUS can be adjusted between 3ppm and 100ppm depending on the dilution factor.
