Histamine Assay Kit
Histamine is naturally occurring in food, with high concentrations associated with spoiled and fermented foods. Exposure to high levels of histamine through the ingestion of food can cause symptoms similar to an allergic response. Our Histamine Assay Kit detects total histamine from food samples using a colorimetric probe. Reduction of the probe yields color development proportional the histamine levels in the sample. Absorbance at 450nm is read after a one hour incubation at 37C and histamine levels are calculated based on a histamine standard curve.
