FARRP is similarly focused on developing assays to detect allergenic food residues that might contaminate other foods.
FARRP co-director Steve Taylor explains that the standard-format Veratox test can quantify the presence of an allergen in a finished food product down to 1 ppm, while the companion test Alert can quantify the presence of allergens on processing surfaces down to 5 ppm.
