The MaxSignal® Melamine ELISA Kit is a competitive ELISA for the quantitative analysis of melamine. Melamine is a chemical used in a variety of industrial processes and can be found in food contact surfaces in processing plants, can coatings, dishware and other kitchenware. Melamine is also used illegally to increase the apparent protein content in food samples such as milk. Trace amounts of melamine can contaminate food by contact without causing health problems, however it is toxic at high levels. In 2010, WHO set the first global limits on permitted melamine levels in food. The 130 members of the Codex Alimentarius Commission set the threshold for melamine in food at 2.5 mg/kg (or 2.5 ppm) and the permitted level for infant formula milk was set at 1 mg/kg (or 1 ppm).

The MaxSignal® Melamine ELISA Kit enables international and government regulatory agencies, food manufacturers and processors, as well as quality assurance organizations, to detect melamine in food samples at concentrations as low as 0.2 ppm to satisfy customers' concerns about food safety.

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

Rapid Test Kits to Detect Residues in Dairy Products

Strip tests detect the most commonly used antibiotics found in cow’s milk. These AuroFlow tests are fast and easy-to-use in a laboratory or in the field, without requiring any additional equipment. In fact, milk can be directly introduced to a sample tube in the new AuroFlow PR1ME kits – the mixing step having been eliminated – and the test strip inserted immediately for results within minutes. PerkinElmer’s test strips are manufactured to test for European Union and CODEX maximum residue limits (MRL). PerkinElmer offers solutions for the detection of a multitude of drug residues, pasteurization verification, and Aflatoxin M1 by other methods such as ELISA based testing.
