Casein refers to a family of proteins commonly found in mammalian milk. Approximately 80% of bovine milk proteins are caseins which are composed of α-, β- and κ-caseins. This protein fraction is the main component in cheese and is frequently used as a food additive.
Caseins also represent heat-stable allergens. Bovine milk is one of the most important allergenic food ingredients, especially for children. Consequently, the labeling of casein or milk is mandatory in many countries all over the world.
Although there are no legal threshold limits for casein, it is highly recommended that food manufacturers test for very low casein concentrations in order to protect allergic individuals and to avoid allergen-related recalls.
Fast and highly sensitive casein analysis
The Romer Labs casein test kit portfolio covers ELISAs and LFDs for the quantitative and qualitative analysis of casein in environmental samples, rinse waters and finished food products.
Detection of fining agents in wine
Casein is an organic compound frequently used as a fining agent in winemaking. In the fining process, casein is added to bind to suspended particles that will precipitate from the wine.
For wine samples, Romer Labs offers the validated AgraQuant® Casein ELISA and the AgraStrip® Casein LFD with a special wine extraction buffer specifically developed for wine analysis.

IgE Rapid Test Background Information
An elevated concentration of IgE in serum is a common symptom associated with allergic pathologies; it may also becaused by autoimmune diseases and some infections. Rapid detection of elevated levels of IgE using the Diagnostic Automation Total- IgE Test will help in the diagnosis and treatment of IgE-mediated allergic and autoimmune disorders.
IgE Rapid Test Principle
The test utilizes the sandwich immunodetection principle. Dye conjugated polyclonal antibody against human IgE and immobilized mouse monoclonal anti-human IgE antibody bind to IgE in the sample specimen to produce a distinctive visual pattern registering IgE concentrations of 80 IU/ml and higher. In the test procedure, patient serum or plasma is added to the sample well "S" of the test device with the aid of a sample dropper. Labeled antibodydye conjugate binds to the human IgE molecules present in the specimen forming an antigen- antibody-dye complex. When the total IgE concentration is at or above the sensitivity level of the test, a visual test band forms in the test zone "T". For additional details please refer to the instructions for use.
