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.

The HistaStrip test strips contain a pad embedded with enzyme that reacts specifically with histamine to reduce a dye indicator, producing a color change for easy visual interpretation of results. When the strips are dipped into samples containing histamine, the pad rapidly changes from white to a color designating the histamine concentration present in the food or drink. Detection capabilities using the strips are well below global action levels. The self-contained, visual test enables easy testing in and out of the laboratory.

The HistaStrip can also give full quantitative results using the QuickSTAR Horizon Strip Reader enabling the customer to determine exact levels of histamine in the sample and easily save data to a computer and quality assurance system.

This kit is manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001.
