Case Study: Analyzing cosmetic products for antigenic proteins from natural rubber latex.

Why: Cosmetics manufacturers face challenges ensuring supply chain quality and often synthetic and natural rubber latex can become intermixed. This is problematic because at least 5% of the population experiences harmful effects from the antigenic proteins found in natural rubber latex.

How: Our team is able to separate and fractionate cosmetic matrices that typically interfere with protein and immunoassays.

Results: We are able to quantify the total and antigenic protein content in numerous cosmetic products.

Importance Of The Results: A cosmetics manufacturer is then able to validate that their ingredients and supply chain are not contaminated with potentially harmful antigenic latex proteins.
