Distinct rapid test strip
Determining soy aeroallergens levels is extremely important in the assessment of health risks due to these airborne substances. Currently, soy aeroallergens exposure in the environment is monitored using enzyme immunoassays EIA which must be evaluated in a specialized laboratory by skilled personnel. To describe the development and performance of a rapid immunochromatography assay for the detection of soy aeroallergens in environmental samples. A test strip using gold labeled anti-soy hull low molecular weight extract SHLMWE antibody for the rapid detection of soy aeroallergens in environmental samples was developed. Strips were also scanned and analysed by densitometry. The rapid test detected a range of concentrations from 6.
