The Allergen Lateral Flow Rapid Test EASY Kit is intended for a quick detection of protein from allergenic ingredients on environmental surfaces (swab test) and rinse water sample. It's a qualitative test in lateral flow immunoassay format for visual detection.
The test procedure is very simple and is performed in only 1 step. The kit comes with a swab kit (ST-25) and does not require any additional consumables for testing.
This kit is not capable of testing food materials, but is a single step test method for test swab and rinse water. No other test kit on the market has such a simple procedure as Rapid Test Easy.

For Swab Test Samples
- Open a screw cap of Swab kit and squeeze the swab bud to remove excess moisture.
- Thoroughly wipe-off the specified surface area with the swab.
- Place the swab into the bottle, cap tightly and shake it vigorously. The resulting solution is referred to as Test Solution.
- Place a Test stick horizontally. Flip open the lid, invert and add 200μL (4 drops) of Test Solution to the sample application slot by squeezing.
- Determine the appropriate amount of PBS before testing. Commercially available swab test kits containing PBS are acceptable. Make sure to examine the kit containing such as peptone in advance.
For Rinse Water Samples
- Collect water and referred to as Test Solution.
- Place a Test stick horizontally and add 200 μL of Test Solution to the sample application slot.
- Incubate 10 minutes at room temperature.
- Interpret the results from the test window.
- A) Positive: A red-purple line in a test window together with red color in a confirmation window.
- B) Negative: No line in a test window together with a red color in a confirmation window.
- C) Invalid: No color in a confirmation window.
- If no color in a confirmation window, retest with a new stick. Negative results will occur if Test Solution contains target protein less than detectable levels. False-negative results may occur if Test Solution contains target protein at relatively high concentrations, in that case, retest with a diluted Test Solution.
