Since 1991, ELISA Technologies, Inc. has provided manufacturers, government agencies, and consumers worldwide with reliable and accurate testing solutions.  We offer an extensive collection of testing options which include lateral flow rapid test kits, quantitative analytical testing kits, swabbing kits and our in-house analytical testing services. With a wide variety of testing options, companies are able to prevent expensive product recalls, provide confident brand name protection, and assure consumer confidence while acting in accordance with product labeling requirements.

ELISA Technologies, Inc. developed the EZ Gluten® lateral flow test for use by consumers and manufacturers.  The EZ Gluten® test is an easy to use kit that will quickly detect the presence of gluten in foods and beverages. It is sensitive enough to detect levels of gluten as low as 10 ppm. This simple test is small and portable enough for use in restaurants or when traveling, and is sensitive and robust enough for use in industry and food manufacturing. It can be used to test individual ingredients in foods, or test finished, raw or cooked products.  EZ Gluten® surface swabs allow manufactures and producers to ensure products are not cross-contaminated during the manufacturing process.

The ALLER-TEK Gluten Test Kit is a quantitative 96-well ELISA assay with a limit of quantitation of 5ppm. It detects gluten in food ingredients as well as in prepared and processed foods and beverages. It can detect gluten from wheat, rye and barley. This kit is for industry use and requires lab equipment for data analysis.

Both the EZ Gluten and Aller-Tek test kits use the anti-omega gliadin antibody developed by Skerritt & Hill for detection. This antibody, which detects both gliadin and glutenins, is the basis of the AOAC Official Method for gluten detection at the 156ppm level.

ELISA Technologies, Inc. also offers confidential commercial testing services employing immunoassays for gluten, prolamins and other allergens. We are a professional full-service A2LA (ISO 17025) accredited laboratory.   We offer a two-day turn around on results.
