Kit Description

Specific kit for the qualitative, rapid, and targeted detection of Anisakis spp in food fish products, fish, roundworms and larvae.

The changes in eating habits over recent years, with an increased consumption of raw fish products (sushi, carpacci, etc.), have led to an increase in the onset of parasitosis in humans.

The most significant parasite in saltwater fish is Anisakis, a round (nematode) whitefish worm, belonging to the Anisakidae family, which is mainly found in blue fish. Anisakis can survive cold-smoking treatments, low-salt marinade treatments and refrigeration temperatures.

L’ sAnisakis, è in grado di sopravvivere a trattamenti di affumicatura a freddo, a trattamenti di marinatura con basso tenore di sale e alle temperature di refrigerazione. Viene ucciso con temperature superiori a 60 °C per 10 minuti e dal congelamento (almeno 24 ore a -20 °C).

La patologia causata dal genere sAnisakis nell’uomo è detta anisakidosi.

L’ sAnisakis è presente sia nel Mar Mediterraneo, sia negli oceani Atlantico, Pacifico e Indiano.

Laboratory research normally takes place through direct visual means. Biomolecular diagnosis with DNA analysis has superseded all of the limitations of current survey methods.*

The kit comprises


For rapid DNA extraction and specific gene amplification with LAMP (LOOP-mediated isothermal amplification) technology; **

Badge (RFID)

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology that contains all the information pertinent to the kit, including the batch number and expiration date**

Tablet with ICGENE App

With real-time results of Anisakis spp's research in the analyzed samples


Automatic interpretation of results

Il sistema permette l’nterpretazione automatica dei risultati, visualizzazione in  tempo reale e disponibilità online. Le scurve sigmoidi in corrispondenza dei campioni positivi (+) indicano la presenza di sAnisakis spp. Le srette indicano che i campioni analizzati sono negativi (o) per sAnisakis spps.
