The SENSISpec Pistachio ELISA represents a highly sensitive detection system for pistachio and is particularly capable of the quantification of residues in cookies, cereals, ice-cream, chocolate and sausage.
With about 21% the fraction of proteins in pistachio seed is very high. Some of these proteins, like the 2S albumin Pis v 1, the 11S globulin Pis v 2 or the 7S vicillin Pis v 3 are known for being allergenic. Many of them are heat resistant making them stable to different production processes. For this reason pistachio represents an important food allergen. For pistachio-allergic persons hidden pistachio allergens in food are a critical problem. Already very low amounts of pistachio can cause allergic reactions, which may lead to anaphylactic shock in severe cases. Because of this, pistachio-allergic persons must strictly avoid the consumption of pistachio containing food. Cross-contamination, mostly in consequence of the production process, is often noticed. This explains why in many cases the existence of pistachio residues in food cannot be excluded. For this reason sensitive detection systems for pistachio residues in foodstuffs are required. The SENSISpec Pistachio ELISA represents a highly sensitive detection system for pistachio and is particularly capable of the quantification of residues in cookies, cereals, ice-cream, chocolate and sausage.
