Neogen's F.A.S.T. Meat Speciation Kits
In addition, Bradley continued, Species identification helps ensure animals treated with veterinary drugs not intended for use in animals intended for human consumption don't make their way into the consumer food chain. For example, the anti-inflammatory drug phenylbutazone is often used in horses, but is banned in food animals because it can cause severe health problems in humans.
Neogen's F.A.S.T. (Food Analyte Screening Test) tests are immunostick assays that can provide clear visual results in about 30 minutes. The company also offers BioKits for Species Identification microwell tests, which provide sensitive, specific qualitative detection for a range of raw and cooked animal species; and DNA-based species identification tests, which use a proprietary magnetic bead technology that provides significant advantages over other methods of DNA extraction.
To complement and support its on-site testing options, Neogen offers contract laboratory services for meat speciation that are carried out by highly trained scientific analysts using state-of-the-art equipment in its location in Scotland. Accredited screening is available for up to eight species.
