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