Cat. No.: 5171GT
The Gluten-Tec® ELISA is a competitive enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative detection of gliadin and gliadin fragments in food.
The kit uses a monoclonal mouse antibody that detects a well characterized T cell stimulatory epitope of α20-gliadin in wheat, and homologue sequences present in barley (hordein), rye (secalin) and their crossbred varieties. These epitopes play a dominant role in the triggering of celiac disease. Both intact and small protein fragments, resulting from the hydrolysation of intact proteins, can be detected. A synthetic peptide that contains the α20-gliadin epitope is used for calibration, which allows an accurate and reproducible standardization.
Detailed information of this ELISA is given in the Product Information Sheet.
