3M™ Clean-Trace™ Surface Protein (Allergen) Test Swab ALLTEC60 is a rapid, simple, and reliable solution to monitor the presence of allergens on surfaces to effectively manage cleaning.
It is a fast and easy way to check whether cleaning has been carried out to a satisfactory standard by means of protein detection. The 3M™ Clean-Trace™ Surface Protein (Allergen) Test Swab uses the 3M™ Digital Heating Block V120 to produce an accurate reading in 15 minutes or less. By comparing the color of the swab and solution against the label, the user can easily interpret the results for the presence of allergens. 3M™ Clean-Trace™ Surface Protein (Allergen) Test Swab ALLTEC60 is validated for a range of allergenic proteins, including egg, milk, gluten, soy, peanut, almond and buckwheat.
With the unique swab-click-read format and easy-to-read color change technology, this simple method of checking for removal of protein residues after cleaning is very easy to use and implement in a busy production environment. The results are semi-quantitative with four possible color interpretations. The faster the test turns purple and the stronger the color change the higher the level of contamination on a surface.
