Smartphone App for Food Allergen Testing

RomerLabs (Tulln, Austria) has launched its new AgraApp for Apple iOS7 to assist in testing for food allergens via lateral flow devices – namely the AgraStrip® line. The AgraApp — which is free of charge and can be downloaded easily from the Apple App Store — enables customers to analyze and document food allergen results obtained with AgraStrip brazil nut, almond, cashew, hazelnut, macadamia nut, peanut, pistachio and walnut varieties.

The procedure is simple: With a smartphone, the user takes a picture of the test strip result region and AgraApp matches the color of the test line to a given color palette in the app, allowing the output of a semi-quantitative result. The picture and the result will be stored on the smartphone and can be forwarded instantly to a computer via email. The AgraApp also contains detailed test kit instructions, FAQs, a stopwatch, re-order forms, and technical support information.
