Food Safety

Histamine assays for seafood analysis

Histamine is a product of decomposition of histidine caused by the growth of certain bacteria in seafood. Fish containing high levels of histamine has been associated with many examples of poisoning commonly referred to as “scombroid poisoning,” a major health problem for consumers. LDN´s trademark HistaSure™ stands for a group of assays based on ELISA or lateral flow technologies for the quantitative and/or semi-quantitative determination of Histamine in seafood – especially for all different kinds of fish samples.
