This all-inclusive gluten testing kit requires minimal training to use and provides results that are easy to interpret —indicating the presence of barley, oat, rye, and/or wheat without cross-activity from corn, rice, or soy.

GlutenTox® Pro: Gluten Testing Kit

GlutenTox® Pro

GlutenTox® Pro is a user-friendly gluten test kit that’s ideal for food manufacturers and commercial kitchens, designed to indicate contamination in food, drinks, and surfaces.

Designed to help companies avoid accidental contamination, it detects gluten from barley, oat, rye, and wheat. Results are available in fewer than 20 minutes and no special equipment is required. The sample collection process is convenient with only minimal training required. Plus, this gluten test kit offers significant savings over other allergen-specific test kits.

AllerSnap™ Rapid Protein Residue Test

FAQs: Allergen Swabs and Tests

What does ATP testing measure? What role does that play in allergen testing?
“ATP” stands for “adenosine triphosphate” and this substance is found in all organic material, which means that it is present, in varying degrees, in all food and drink. It is, in fact, the universal unit of energy and is therefore present in all living cells. ATP testing (also called ATP monitoring) involves testing surface cleanliness using methods that provide rapid results. This is why ATP testing is often used by food and beverage manufacturers, commercial kitchens, and the like. If ATP residue still exists on a surface, this can lead to unwanted cross-contamination, which is crucial to avoid because of potential allergic reactions in the consumer. Hygiena allergen swabs make this testing fast and easy so that your company can quickly boost and verify cleaning protocols.
What is ATP swabbing?
Surface samples are collected through the use of swab devices that can detect the presence of certain residues. Gluten test kits, for example, would include allergen swabs in a kit that specifically tests for that substance. Then, the company could address any hygiene-related issues to protect both its customers and the brand’s reputation. Testing is rapid and results are easy to read with either no or minimal training.
Why should ATP allergen testing play a key role in my company’s overall allergen control initiatives?
Consistently using allergen swab testing kits is a highly effective, holistic method of preventing allergen cross-contamination, which protects the health of customers with allergies and the reputation of the company. Regular testing also allows companies to improve upon cleaning protocols and then verify the effectiveness of the enhanced protocols.
How can Hygiena allergen swabs help with biofilms?
After these sticky polymers form where microorganisms meet up with food and moisture, it can be challenging to address them with sanitizers alone. Hygiena swabs can cut through the biofilm and therefore play a key role in addressing hygiene issues associated with the presence of biofilm.
