Immunoassays in Food Testing

As a leader in the food and feed safety testing industry, PerkinElmer develops, manufactures, and markets a wide range of test kits for the detection of antibiotics, hormones, veterinary drug residues, natural toxins, pathogens, and a variety of industrial contaminants found within the global food chain. Our goal is to provide food producers, processors, and government agencies with high quality test kits enabling compliance with global and local regulations to produce safe food for their customers. Highlights of our food and feed safety product line include:

  • AuroFlow branded rapid lateral flow devices allowing customers to test for antibiotics in raw milk in 7 minutes or less, with little or no required equipment;
  • MaxSignal® ELISA kits, including some of the most sensitive tests on the market, and offering a broad range of solutions for any customer;
  • AOAC-approved kit for detection of histamine with as little as 15 minutes from sample to results.
  • The Solus Pathogen Detection System provides robust and highly efficient assays for the detection of Salmonella, Listeria or E. coli O157. All assays are validated by external independent laboratories to AFNOR 16140 and/or certified by the AOAC Performance Tested Method program.

With our quality management system certified to ISO 9001 standards, we strive to deliver high quality products and services in conjunction with exceptional customer service and technical support.

Lateral Flow in Food Testing

PerkinElmer's lateral flow strip tests provide a convenient, rapid, strip-based technology for the detection of antibiotics, mycotoxins and marine toxins. The tests are fast and easy to use in a laboratory setting or in the field. The AuroFlow kits are qualitative tests manufactured to test for European Union and CODEX maximum residue limits for antibiotics while the AuroFlow AQ platform is a rapid, quantitative lateral flow assay designed to detect mycotoxin residues in corn, wheat and other commodities. The HistaStrip Test Kit is a convenient dipstick technology for the rapid visual detection of histamine in a variety of sample types. The test strips can detect unsafe levels of histamine in only 4 minutes without the use of organic solvents or heating steps and can also give full quantitative results using the QuickSTAR Strip Reader.
