Economically Motivated Adulteration (EMA) happens where a food is mixed with a cheaper ingredient to reduce its production cost and increase profit. Meat tops the list of food fraud cases because it?s expensive to produce and buy, it?s widely consumed, and adulteration with cheaper substitutes is hard to detect for the average consumer. DNA analysis represents a primary defense against food fraud connected to meat. This kit allows to quantify the meat contribution in DNA extracted from complex matrices containing multiple sources of DNA. When used in combination with VERYfinder species ID detection kits and QuantiScale calibrants this kit enables relative quantification of specific animal species DNA with respect to total animal DNA in a sample. The relative limit of quantification varies depending on the sample analysed.
