BioKits assays for pork speciation are quantitative microwell tests that have been developed for use for the detection of allergens or meat species in foods. Rapid tests for pork speciation from Neogen® can screen samples for as little as 1% of pork 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 pork species whether it be for safety, economic, or ethical reasons. Lateral flow, microwell and PCR (DNA) testing methods are available.
