The Lateral Flow Sesame assay is a qualitative detection assay of Peanut residues in surface samples got from e.g. production lines. The assay is also applicable for food samples. The assay is applied for the detection of small amounts of Sesame contaminations.
Sesame contaminations in food possibly elicit hypersensitivity in sensitive persons. Food production lines have to be free of residues to prevent these allergic reactions. The effectiveness of cleaning can be verified by using the Lateral Flow Sesame Swabbing method.
