The new Veratox VIP for Walnut allergen test demonstrates robust performance across sample types, while maintaining the simple testing methodology of the Veratox product line.

“As tree nuts remain one of the most common allergens, it is incredibly important that we are providing solutions that make it easier for producers to detect potential contamination, and strengthen their allergen control plans,” stated John Adent, Neogen’s President and CEO. “Given the highly sensitive nature of the new Veratox VIP for Walnut assay, producers can be confident in Neogen’s strong commitment to food safety and quality.”

This innovative quantitative test demonstrates excellent specificity down to 0.15 ppm walnut protein, one of the lowest detection concentrations for an ELISA kit. The product is appropriate for testing samples from a wide variety of product types and processing environments, including heat-processed and complex samples. Veratox VIP for Walnut utilizes a best-in-class 30-minute time-to-result and ready-to-use reagents.
