Allergen Lateral Flow Devices – How they work and when to use them
Tuesday September 28, 2021, 1.00 – 2.00pm (AEST)
One of the most important methods to manage food allergies is to control foods containing the causative proteins. This can involve common procedures such as GMP, HACCP and SSOP which are routinely verified through laboratory testing. Lateral Flow Devices (LFD) are one of the most rapid testing methods used within the manufacturing sector for allergen management. Jasmine and Troy will discuss the inner workings of the method, the role they can play in allergen mitigation and the fit for purpose nature of these devices.
