BioKits assays for pork speciation are qualitative tests that have been developed for use for the detection of meat species in foods. Rapid tests for pork speciation from Neogen® can screen samples for as little as 1% of pork in meats and meat products.
To prevent the ingestion of the wrong species for religious or health reasons, a number of countries have adopted animal identification procedures. Neogen offers tests to detect pork species whether it be for safety, economic, or ethical reasons. Lateral flow, microwell and PCR (DNA) testing methods are available.
