A basic requirement of European food and feed regulation is that ingredients must be fully and correctly labelled. In this context, the information on which animal species are contained in a product may be important on many levels. These range from aspects of quality to product tampering to concerns regarding food safety and religious requirements (e.g. halal meat). In view of consumers’ right to accurate and clear information to allow them to choose their food and evaluate price differences, the name of the animal species used must be listed alongside the classification “Meat from”. The SureFood®ANIMAL respectively SureFood®Fish product range therefore provides efficient and rapid real-time PCR methods for food monitoring. The service portfolio also enables us to detect less common mammals and species of fish.
Note: The detection of animal species is possible with CONGEN product kits as well as services (laboratory assays). If you would like to commission a detection in the CONGEN ServiceLab, please select “services” in the drop-down menu.
