Eurofins Launches An Innovative DNA Chip Technology Enabling The Identification Of 21 Animal Species In Food And Feed

Published: Jun 11, 2015

LUXEMBOURG--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eurofins Scientific (EUFI.PA), world leader in food and environment testing, has launched a novel analytical method based on DNA chip technology which enables simultaneous detection and identification of up to 21 animal species in feed and food products.

Following the horsemeat crisis in 2013, identification of animal species in food products has become a major concern for the feed and food industry in Europe. Existing analytical methods for the detection of single species are no longer sufficient to meet the current supply chain requirements, such as verifying that product composition not only complies with relevant regulations, but is also entirely consistent with the claims on the label, and ensuring the absence of undesired species in the product (e.g. horsemeat in beef, or ruminants in animal feed).
