Real-Time PCR Assays

Real-time PCR (polymerase chain reaction) is a very effective technology for the detection of food allergens. As markers for the presence of potentially allergenic foods or ingredients, specific proteins or DNA fragments are targeted. It allows fast, simple, and reliable detection of pathogens, spoilage organisms, allergens, genetically modified plants, and viruses in a variety of samples, such as Dairy, Beverage/Beer, Confectionary, Infant Formula, Seafood, Meat, Animal Feed, Environment/Water, Spices/Ingredients, Processed Food, Fruits and Vegetables.

 Key  Benefits:

  • Fast – Detection by real-time PCR in a few hours
  • Easy – Simple implementation and user-friendly handling
  • Specific – Accurate results for target organisms
  • Sensitive – Safe detection of even the smallest quantities
  • Safe – Validated systems, confirmation of results with included controls
