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

Instant Assessment of Hazards from Raw Meat
| By Hygiena International
In food law enforcement 45% of infringements are due to failures in general hygiene standards and 37% of all infringements are due to microbiological contamination. Meat and fish products have the largest number of microbiological infringement (29%) compared to all other foodstuffs and they present the largest single food safety hazard due to the presence of potentially pathogenic bacteria. It has been calculated that every 1% reduction in the incidence of foodborne disease in the UK extrapolates to 10,000 fewer cases each year with a saving of £15 million.
