Romer Labs has announced the introduction of a new test kit to its AgraStrip® portfolio of lateral flow devices.

The AgraStrip Coconut test kit brings the simplicity and reliability that all kits in the AgraStrip line share to an analyte of great importance to food production segments as diverse as confectionery, dairy, and infant formula.

The AgraStrip Coconut test kit brings a much-needed solution to food producers looking either to prevent coconut contamination or to inform their consumers with accurate labeling regarding coconut content.

AgraStrip Coconut kits are highly sensitive immunochromatographic lateral flow tests designed for the detection of coconut in foods and beverages and for the validation and monitoring of cleaning procedures by testing rinse waters and environmental swab samples.

“We are proud to add yet another testing solution to our already comprehensive AgraStrip line of solutions with the AgraStrip Coconut test kit,” says Eva Wanzenböck, managing director, Romer Labs. “The AgraStrip Coconut kit has the same advantages that our customers have come to expect from the AgraStrip line: a very fast time-to-result of 11 minutes including extraction, stability at room temperature, a long shelf life, and at 10 ppm coconut one of the lowest LODs around. All AgraStrip test kits share the same extraction procedure for allergenic analytes, making the whole portfolio an industry leader in convenience and accuracy.”
