CarnoCheck – DNA test identifies eight animal species in foodstuffs within 3 hours
Consumer protection groups and politicians are now calling for Europewide DNA testing for a whole range of foodstuffs.
Using the CarnoCheck DNA test, hundreds of samples are currently being tested at various European laboratories as part of efforts to find answers in the horsemeat labelling fraud.
Using "DNA chip technology", which is already deployed by countless laboratories, the specific genetic fingerprint of many different parameters can be detected unambiguously in one single analysis.
With the CarnoCheck DNA chip, the eight animal species can be identified in foodstuffs down to a detection limit of 0.5 per cent. A comprehensive control system also ensures the quality of the analysis.
Here at Cruinn we are supllying the CarnoCheck enabling eight animal species to be detected in foodstuffs quickly and reliably. As well as horses, the kit covers pigs, donkeys, sheep, cattle, chickens, turkeys and goats
