Rapid Protein Detection Test - FLASH®

  • Rapid test results with clear colour interpretation - Verify cleaning effectiveness quickly and consistently, allowing for immediate corrective action while minimising downtime between production change-overs.
  • 1 swab, 2 sensitivity levels - Choose the appropriate testing sensitivity based on application or area-specific limits of detection for protein residue. Obtain initial room temperature results down to 20 µg (down to 3 µg for high temperature incubation) within 10 minutes.
  • Detects protein residues including certain “Big 8” food allergens - FLASH is a perfect complement to LIGHTNING MVP ICON® ATP testing, which is a commonly used method for monitoring overall environmental hygiene. ATP tests can’t measure protein, which is a difficult food residue to remove from surfaces even after cleaning. Used regularly, both can be incorporated into validated cleaning procedures (SSOPs) to minimise the risk of biological contamination and cross-contamination to allergen-free products.
