QuickTox Kit for Melamine
QuickTox Kit for Melamine screens supply chain inputs quickly, simply and cost-effectively. Use on-site
at material-receiving points for accurate, reliable and visual screening of numerous sample types--corn gluten meal, cottonseed meal, DDGs, soybean meal, and more. The Kit may also be adapted to detect melamine in finished pet food and milk.
This melamine test is a lateral flow device (LFD) which will screen for the chemical contaminant at thresholds established by regulatory agencies worldwide. For food and feed inputs, its 2.5 ppm detection level matches even the most sensitive ELISA plate kit on the market, yet QuickTox gives you immediate answers and substantial cost savings.

Melamine (tripolycyanamide) is a nitrogen-rich industrial chemical often used in plastics and adhesives. Allegedly, it has been used by raw materials suppliers to artificially inflate the apparent protein content in various food and feed products.
Melamine has low acute toxicity, but prolonged exposure can lead to urinary stones and other health problems. For more information about melamine, please follow the links below.
