Remarks Allergen Swab Test (qualitative) - Wipe Test for Surfaces There are 2 samples of a Test Surface with Allergens offered for the detection of each allergen by means of a wipe test (swab test). The allergens to be tested were attached to one test surface, while the other test surface is "negative". The evaluation is exclusively qualitative (positive/negative) with indication of the obtained agreement with the consensus values of the participants and the spiking of the surfaces. As a analitical test method, the Lateral-Flow-Test is particularly suitable. ELISA, PCR and LC/MS can also be used.
