Meat ID™ Halal 25 reactions
Meat ID™ Halal is a qPCR-based screening system for fast and reliable identification of pork and donkey in meat and other foods.
The identification of meat types, especially in minced meat products, represents a serious issue from the point of view of food safety as well as from an ethical perspective, for example when food has to meet particular dietary or religious needs.
The absence of forbidden or not declared ingredients (e.g. pork or donkey meat) in food is essential to ensure confidence in the supply chain and regulatory compliance of halal-labeled food.
Meat ID™ Halal can be used in research and industry for detection of pork and donkey in meat and other foods by qPCR. For research use only! Do not use for clinical diagnostic or testing of patient samples.
DNA can be extracted from sample material using DNA extraction kits e.g. ExtractNow™ Meat ID Kit (Cat. No. 608-1050) or user method.
