According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), approximately 32 million people in the United States have food allergies. According to Food Allergy Canada, approximately 2.6 million Canadians, 500,000 of whom are children, are currently living with food allergies. To protect the health and safety of those with food allergies, it is your responsibility as a food manufacturer to ensure your products undergo food allergen testing.

Element offers industry standard and specialized food allergen testing to confirm the presence or absence of allergens using the Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) method. Our experts can test food samples directly or use environmental sponges and swabs to determine if the allergen DNA in question exists within the protein. Our extensive qualitative data will help you understand and mitigate any risks of your products, potentially being recalled in the future.

With Element, you not only get first-time-right, on-time results through our food allergen testing, but the support of an industry expert who is committed to ensuring your products are safe to go to market.
