A Qualitative Method for the Identification of Animal Species in Uncooked Meat and Meat Products
INTENDED USE: The ELISA-TEK® Raw Meat Species Assay qualitatively detects animal species content in uncooked meat, poultry, meat products, eggs, and milk. The testing method is based on antibodies raised to species-specific serum albumin.
The ELISA-TEK® Raw Meat Species Kits have been formatted and refined for portability and ease-of-use to aid in resolution of species content.
Preventing adulteration of meat foods with less desirable or objectionable meat species is important for economic, regulatory, health and ethnic reasons. Testing assures the consumer that the meat and poultry they purchase is safe, wholesome, unadulterated, and properly labeled which is of particular importance in religious communities where the consumption of a particular meat is proscribed.
Suitable for testing: for animal species content in uncooked meat, poultry, and meat products.
Limit of Detection: <1.0% for meat and poultry (all species) <5.0% for milk (relevant species only)
Specificity: Species specific serum albumin
