FITkit® is an immunological test for measuring natural rubber latex (NRL) allergens from a variety of rubber products, such as gloves, condoms, teats etc. This novel method is the first ever test for the measurement of clinically relevant NRL allergens, and enables quantification of individual allergens. FITkit® technology is compliant on the ASTM International standard D7427-08.
A separate FITkit® is available for measuring each of the major allergens: Hev b 1, Hev b 3, Hev b 5 and Hev b 6.02.
Applications of FITkit test vary from producers R&D or quality control needs to measure latex allergens in finished products or those in different phases on production line, assess production development to different distribution organizations purchasing departments tool of quality criteria. Newer approach has found FITkit applicable to synthetic products contamination control. If absence of major NRL allergens in synthetic protective gloves or in other synthetic rubber products with medical purpose of use requires verification, implementation of FITkit has offered a useful solution.
