BACKGROUND: According to the European Commission Directive 2002/86/EC, food ingredients must be declared. In the case of meat and meat products, animal species have to be labeled with precise information about the species and its percentage in the product. Additionally, according to the EU Directive 273/2008 and 1379/2013, the addition of cow’s milk in high-quality non-cow’s milk is regulated at 0.5% and the fish species labeling is mandatory with the trade name, respectively. Moreover, the species authenticity is also highly relevant to the consumer for diverse reasons such as economic, health, cultural, and religious. Fraudulent substitution of cheaper meats/fishes in place of more expensive ones, the inclusion of meat in non-meat (vegetarian) products, and the interest of knowing the animal speciation in meat products (halal and kosher) are clear examples for the importance of this issue. Several methods for species detection are based on the identification of proteins by means of electrophoretic and/or immunological methods. However, these methods are not reliable for application in highly processed and heated products due to protein deterioration. DNA is more stable than proteins during processing and although it can be fragmented by several processes, DNA methodologies like PCR based techniques still allow the identification of DNA from the different species present in a sample. Real time PCR techniques, using specific fluorescent probes, are especially suitable for these products because small fragments of DNA can still be amplified and identified with high sensitivity and specificity. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: SUPREME REAL TIME DETECTION Chicken uses real-time PCR for the detection of Chicken DNA present in the mitochondrial genome in a simple, reliable, and rapid procedure. The assay is based on 5’ nuclease real time PCR reactions to amplify a unique genomic sequence in the target. Our carefully designed primers and probe ensure highest sensitivity and specificity. The kit consists of an assay mix for the detection of the target as well as a positive control and an internal control (IC). To minimize PCR cross-contamination,the Kit contains dUTP and uracil-N glycosylase (UDG). Comparative quantification analysis of DNA in food and feedstuff products to estimate the percentage of the fraudulent products is also possible using in combination with the DNA Standard SUPREME Chicken Kit (optional). PRODUCT FEATURES: -Amplification and detection of Chicken DNA -Real-time PCR with rapid hot-start Taq DNA polymerase -Internal Control to exclude false-negative results -Optimized to handle PCR inhibitors, containing UDG enzyme -Higher stability, enzymes in seperate tubes -PCR- platforms: runs on all established standard real-time PCR- platforms -Harmonized thermal profiles to run with other SUPREME BIOPREMIER kits simultaneously -Channel Target: FAM, Channel IC: ROX -Available formats: Kits with 100 or 10 reactions -DNA Standard SUPREME Chicken Kit (optional)
