MQuant™ Peroxidase Test: Monitor Milk Easily During Pasteurization
The product quality of milk depends heavily on successful pasteurization. To verify this, the lactoperoxidase activity must be measured regularly. For example, UHT milk reacts negatively for lactoperoxidase, because the enzyme is deactivated through proper heating.

The EU Requires Peroxidase Validation in Pasteurized Milk
Lactoperoxidase is an enzyme present in raw milk and that can only be denatured through ultra-high temperature processing (UHT), and not through simple pasteurization. For this reason, the European Union Regulation (91/180/EC) requires that peroxidase be detected in pasteurized milk as proof that the product has undergone gentle heat treatment.
MQuant™ Peroxidase Test: Easy, Fast and Cost-Effective
With the qualitative MQuant™ Peroxidase Test, the enzyme can now be detected easily, fast and cost-effectively by using test strips. Quantitative testing like the Reflectoquant® Test is not any longer required.
