NimaGen provides a unique, validated meat detection kit to trace and quantify DNA of a wide variety of species in food samples. This ultra sensitive method is based on Real-Time PCR (qPCR) detection of mitochondrial DNA, based on a unique species-specific DNA sequence. Because of the multiple copies per cell of the Mitochondrial DNA, this method is up to 100 times more sensitive compared to assays based on a single locus on genomic DNA. Meat detection assays are designed to ensure detection of all subspecies.

Meat detection kits are based on dual labeled probe degradation. It can be used for plus/minus (detection) as well as for quantification of species-specific DNA in a (food) sample.

Species-specific assay:

All probes in the kits are detected through the FAM channel, so that the presence of foreign mitochondrial DNA can be prove.

Positive control for quantification:

With this provided control you can perform a standard curve, in order to perform a quantitative check of foreign DNA in your food samples.

Internal control (for spiking before extraction):

To perform the best possible control, we provide an extraction control with probe, primers and template: spike this exogenous DNA template to the lysis, in order to co-purify it with the sample. Use the primers and probe as an internal multiplex (VIC-channel) reaction. Due to the primer limiting design of this internal control (Ct of 28 +/- 3), it does not affect the sensitivity of the assay.
