Ringbio cow milk fraud test kit to detect cow milk composition in goat/sheep milk.
Goat/sheep milk is considered as another source of protein for human consumption, which is regarded as high nutrition, low allergic. thus in the dairy field, one of the most common frauds is the adulteration of higher value types of milk (sheep and goats) with milk of lower value (cow's milk). This illegal practice has an economic advantage for milk producers and poses a threat to consumers' health because of the presence of hidden allergens as, for example, cow milk proteins, in particular, α(s1)-casein and β-lactoglobulin. The urgent need for sensitive techniques to detect this kind of fraud brought to the development of chromatographic, immunoenzymatic, electrophoretic, and mass spectrometric assays.

Other technologies in milk fraud detection
Instrument analysis such as liquid chromatography, MALDI-TOF,etc have been seen in report to detect milk fraud, in which fatty acid, casein etc are the target analyte and fingerprint for indentification. ELISAs based on the same principle as lateral flow immunoassays are also employed in the related analysis. Other technologies such as SDS-PAGE, WB, etc are also used in report.
