Gluten test kit: Proteon Gluten Express


In 10 minutes and without equipment, anyone can verify that your production is free from gluten.

Are you considering of doing allergen control but you do not know how to approach it?
Do you want to verify cleaning between productions when sharing production lines?
Do you have many products to analyse and you need results immediately or within a day?
Are you implementing IFS, BRC or ISO 22000 2005 quality standards?


The speed and simplicity of the Proteon Express tests allow adapting the allergen analysis to the time and place you need. Having specific information will allow us to make immediate decisions between productions, detect insufficient cleanings, control critical points of contamination and ensure the release of your product to the market without risk.
Although rapid test are also very efficient to control post-cleaning contaminations in shared facilities. Flours formed aerosols and remain floating in the environment. These particles in suspension are slowly placed on working surfaces and even in nearby spaces after cleaning.


Immunochromatographic assay, in a fast strip format, based on the detection of prolamins of gluten by a specific antibody in a non-competitive sandwich assay.


  • Limit of detection: 3 ppm of gluten.
  • Limit of detection in surfaces: 1 µg of gluten.
  • Assay time: 10 min.
