Identifying Meat Species Using RFLP-PCR and the QIAxcel® Advanced System

Published 25 January 2016 | By QIAGEN

In order to protect consumers’ interests it was necessary to introduce effective control and verify species composition of different food products. Molecular biology PCR-RFPL based method allows for unequivocal species identification in raw but also in processed food. By applying four restriction enzymes it was possible to distinguish meats from 15 animals, and in addition 6 animals served as contamination markers. The automated procedure presented, with the QIAxcel Advanced system, is fast (results available in less than 8h), accurate and therefore applicable in routine analyses.
