Solus Scientific : Quick and efficient pathogen & allergen testing systems

Solus Scientific produces pathogen and allergen testing systems. Committed to food safety excellence our assays bring significant productivity benefits to a food safety testing environment.

In a fast paced food testing environment it is critical to process samples quickly and efficiently, enabling the production facility to take actions such as release product, reduce inventory, or take prompt corrective actions when necessary. As sample volumes fluctuate the lab must also have the flexibility to cope with varying demands, maximizing throughput with optimal use of resources.

Solus AllergenScreen™ range provides rapid, and simple detection of food allergens.

Solus AllergenScreen™ allows for the testing of raw materials, production equipment, rinse samples or food at any point in the production process.
This helps to ensure products have not been contaminated with the target allergen.

Solus Raw Meat Tests

Solus Scientific manufactures a range of immunoassays designed to determine the authenticity and identify adulteration of raw meat for food manufacturers and contract testing laboratories. Presented in both immunoassay and rapid flow through formats, these tests allow food manufacturers to determine suitable testing schedules using a combination of immunoassay laboratory testing and on-site rapid testing. Often, production sites routinely use the flow through tests and then send samples for testing, if positive results are obtained or if a problem is suspected.


Solus Scientific offers rapid, and cost effective immunoassays to check for authenticity and adulteration in raw meat, providing traceability and confirming the integrity of meat, meat products and production facilities.

  • Available for horse, sheep, pork, beef and poultry
  • Fast, reliable analysis complete in 90 minutes
  • Can be used manually or with Solus automation
  • Detection limit 1%
  • All reagents supplied including controls
