Food Authenticity Determination of animal species and origins

Authenticity testing of food samples has become one of the hot topics in QC labs, and sample numbers are steadily increasing, because false labelling of ingredients and/or origin is of concern for public health, taxation and religious conduct. Hence, reliable monitoring of the supply chain is crucial for both, producer and consumer. Here, Analytik Jena offers products and solutions that meet the analytical needs of laboratories upholding the highest standards.

Animal Species Identification

The innuDETECT Species ID Assays enable the identification of animal species in processed food products by their genetic information. The assays allow a highly sensitive detection of e.g. pork, beef, horse, goat, sheep, chicken, turkey and donkey. Other assays allow a fast determination of the origin of milk in cheese (beef, sheep and goat) or the detection of bird and mammal or fish DNA, e.g. for vegetarian products.
