Assay Principle

Reveal for Total Milk Allergen is a two part lateral flow immunochromatographic assay. The first part of the assay consists of a detector reagent well, which contains antibodies specific for milk residue conjugated to colored particles. This reagent is rehydrated with a supplied sample diluent, and sample is added to the reagent well. If milk residue is present in the sample, it will be bound by the antibody–particle complex.

The second part of the assay consists of an immunochromatographic device used for the detection of milk residue. This device is inserted into the sample/reagent well. The milk-antibody-particle complex is then wicked onto a membrane which contains a zone of antibody specific for milk residue. This zone captures the complex allowing the particles to concentrate and form a visible line. If no milk is present, no line will form. The membrane also contains a control zone where an immune complex present in the reagent zone is captured by an antibody, forming a visible line. The control line will always form regardless of the presence of milk, ensuring the strip is working properly.
