R-Biopharm offers a sandwich enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative analysis of macadamia nut in raw and processed food such as bakery products, ice cream, cereals and chocolate. The limit of detection of RIDASCREEN®FAST Macadamia (product code R6852) is 0.64 ppm (mg/kg).

The test shows a low cross-reactivity to some beans (kidney bean: 0.047%; pinto bean: 0.038%; white bean: 0.001%), but no cross-reactivity to other nuts such as walnut, cashew, almond, peanut, brazil nut, hazelnut and pistachio was observed.

Nuts are among the most common food causing allergic reactions in children and adults. Comparable to other nut allergies, macadamia nut allergy can result in a wide range of reactions, from moderate symptoms up to anaphylaxis.

According to the European Allergen Regulation EU 2007/68/EG, macadamia nuts have to be declared in food when added as an ingredient. Similar regulations are in place in the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Soya products are becoming ever more popular and are increasingly used in the food industry. This can result in the unintentional cross-contamination of foods in the production process. Even small concentrations of soya can cause food allergies, which is why in many countries soya has to be labeled as an allergen.

Identify new markers for cancer with qPCR

Agricultural Sciences / Nutrition & Food Sciences ...

One of the most exciting potential applications of circulating non-coding RNAs like microRNA (miRNA) and long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) is as biomarkers for early detection of cancer. Easily accessible markers like RNAs in the blood are an attractive possibility for finding cancers as soon as possible. Our scientists have compiled an application note showing how to use qPCR in translational research to identify potential lncRNA biomarkers in lung cancer. Check it out here!
