This study aims to describe the behavior of milk protein and gliadin on swabs overtime. Eventually, the results of this study would support decision making regarding swabbing logistic in a food plant. We followed the concentration of milk and gliadin collected from a stainless surface with five types of swabs (cotton, dacron, rayon, polyester, and polyurethane); analysis was performed with ELISA. Milk and gliadin collected on swabs from the contaminated (food and bacteria) surface were stored at 37℃ for 7 days and their relative concentration was tested at day 0, 1, 2, 3 and 7.
