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 Real-Time PCR kit detects OVINE traces down to 0.1% (DNA w/w). When used along with VERYfinder QuantiScale (PMA05W), QuantiCust (PMA05X) and when necessary PMA99A-50, the kit can quantify the content of OVINE DNA in any matrix.
