Controls provided: 0, 2.5, 5, 10 and 25 ppm

Veratox® Coconut (8460)
Range of quantitation: 1.0 ppm - 25 ppm coconut protein
Controls provided: 0, 1.0, 2.5, 5, 10 and 25 ppm

Veratox® Crustacea (8520)
Range of quantitation: 2.5 ppm - 25 ppm crustacea
Controls provided: 0, 2.5, 5, 10 and 25 ppm

Veratox® Egg (8450)
Range of quantitation: 2.5 ppm - 25 ppm whole dried egg
Controls provided: 0, 2.5, 5, 10 and 25 ppm

Veratox® Gliadin R5 (8410)
Limit of Quantitation: 2.5 ppm gliadin corresponding to 5 ppm (0.0005%) gluten
Range of quantitation: 2.5 ppm - 40 ppm gliadin (5.0 ppm - 80 ppm gluten)
Controls provided: 0, 2.5, 5, 10, 20 and 40 ppm
Note: The gliadin test can detect gluten from wheat, rye and barley quantitatively with a limit of quantitation of 5 ppm gluten. Gluten consists of two groups of proteins (prolamins and glutelins) that are found in differing amounts in wheat, barley and rye. Approximately 50% of the gluten is available as gliadin, ppm gliadin results are multiplied by 2 and reported as ppm gluten

Veratox® Hazelnut (8420)
Range of quantitation: 2.5 ppm - 25 ppm total hazelnut
Controls provided: 0, 2.5, 5, 10 and 25 ppm

Veratox® Histamine (9505)
Range of quantitation: 2.5 ppm - 40 ppm histamine
Controls provided: 0, 2.5, 5, 10, 20 and 50 ppm

Veratox® Total Milk (8470)
Range of quantitation: 2.5 ppm - 25 ppm non-fat dried milk
Controls provided: 0, 2.5, 5, 10 and 25 ppm

Veratox® Mustard (8400)
Range of quantitation: 2.5 ppm - 25 ppm mustard
Controls provided: 0, 2.5, 5, 10 and 25 ppm

Veratox® Peanut (8430)
Range of quantitation: 2.5 ppm - 25 ppm total peanut
Controls provided: 0, 2.5, 5, 10 and 25 ppm
