The identification of species content is performed in many countries for a variety of reasons including economic, ethnic and safety. Such identification may be designed to prevent the substitution of meat destined for human consumption with that of unsuitable or inferior species, or may be of importance in various religious communities where consumption of a particular species is proscribed. The Biokits range of speciation test kits allows qualitative detection of meat species. Test kits are available for either raw or cooked meats and detect 1-2% of the target meat species.
