Detect fraud in the labeling of meat in the prepared dishes.

The recent crisis of substitution of beef meat by horse demonstrates that nobody is immune to fraud. Therefore, the questions posed by consumers are of two types:

  • Is there horse meat in my lasagna?
  • And if so, what's the percentage?

The same issues arise for Halal and pork or any other label.

Progenus, to meet the aspirations of consumers and control authorities, has developed a range of RT-PCR kits simple, sensitive and specific:

  1. kits for DNA extraction (gamma EXT)

                  DNA extraction from bakery                  DNA extraction from dairy products             DNA extraction from meat products
