Neogen’s BioKits assays for food allergens and meat speciation are quantitative microwell tests that have been developed for use for the detection of allergens or meat species in foods. Neogen’s rapid tests for sheep speciation can screen samples for as little as 1% of sheep in meats, meat products and feedstuff.
With the scare of diseases such as "mad cow" and ingesting the wrong species for religious or health reasons, a number of countries have adopted animal identification procedures. Neogen offers tests to detect animal species whether it be for safety, economic, or ethical reasons. Lateral flow, microwell and PCR (DNA) testing methods are available.
