General description

Histamine is a biogenic amine, generated from the single decarboxylation of the amino acid histidine. Histamine food poisonings are allergy-like food poisonings caused by the ingestion of spoiled food containing markedly elevated histamine levels. Elevated levels of bacterial fermentation can lead to elevated histamine in various food and drink sources such as fish, fermented meat, milk, cheese, beer, and wine.

Features and Benefits

Suitability

The kit is suitable for the quantification of histamine in various food and beverage samples.

Principle

The kit is based on the enzymatic oxidation of histamine, which is coupled to the reduction of the formazan WST reagent. The intensity of the product color, measured at 450 nm, is directly proportional to histamine concentration in the sample.
