Art. No.: 5105**

Intended use:

Assay for the positive identification of species content (various) in raw samples:

      • ELISA-TEK™ Raw Mixed Species Kit: customized (Art. No. 510501)
      • ELISA-TEK™ Raw 3 Species Kit: cow, pig, poultry (Art. No. 510503)
      • ELISA-TEK™ Raw 4 Species Kit: cow, pig, poultry, sheep (Art. No. 510504)
      • ELISA-TEK™ Raw Beef Kit (Art. No. 510511)
      • ELISA-TEK™ Raw Pork Kit (Art. No. 510521)
      • ELISA-TEK™ Raw Poultry Kit (Art. No. 510531)
      • ELISA-TEK™ Raw Sheep Species Kit (Art. No. 510541)
      • ELISA-TEK™ Raw Horse Species Kit (Art. No. 510551)

General Information:

This assay is designed to qualitatively determine animal species content in uncooked meat, poultry, meat products, eggs and milk. These test kits are based on species-specific antibodies and are capable of detecting as little as 1% of meat species content.

ELISA-TEK™ Cooked Meat Species Kit

Art. No.: 5106**

Intended use:

Assay for the positive identification of species content (various) in cooked samples:

      • ELISA-TEK™ Cooked Mixed Species Kit: customized (Art. No. 510601)
      • ELISA-TEK™ Cooked Meat 3 Species Kit: beef, pork, poultry (Art. No. 510603)
      • ELISA-TEK™ Cooked Meat 4 Species Kit: beef, pork, poultry, sheep (Art. No. 510604)
      • ELISA-TEK™ Cooked Meat Beef Species Kit (Art. No. 510611)
      • ELISA-TEK™ Cooked Meat Pork Species Kit (Art. No. 510621)
      • ELISA-TEK™ Cooked Meat Poultry Species Kit (Art. No. 510631)
      • ELISA-TEK™ Cooked Meat Sheep Species Kit (Art. No. 510641)
      • ELISA-TEK™ Cooked Meat Horse Species Kit (Art. No. 510651)
      • ELISA-TEK™ Cooked Meat Deer Species Kit (Art. No. 510661)

General Information:

This assay is designed to qualitatively determine animal species content in cooked and canned meat, meat products, processed foods and meat and bone meals. This assay, used in the USDA-FSIS Microbiology Lab Guidebook, is based on antibodies raised to heat-resistant, species specific, muscle-related glycoproteins. These test kits are capable of detecting as little as 1% of meat species content.

MELISA-TEK™ Test Kits

Art. No.: 5103**

Intended use:

Assay for the positive identification of species content in highly processed meat and bone meals:

  • MELISA-TEK™ Meat Species Ruminant Kit (Art. No. 510311)
  • MELISA-TEK™ High Sensitivity Extraction Kit (Art. No. 510391)
  • MELISA-TEK™ Meat Species Pork Kit (Art. No. 510321)

General Information:

These assays are designed to detect porcine or ruminant muscle protein in meat and bone meals, as well as in animal feeds. These tests will detect porcine or bovine/ovine/caprine skeletal and cardiac muscle content in products processed at temperatures exceeding 133 °C and 3 bars of pressure (300 kPa) and can identify feeds containing banned tissues. These test kits are capable of detecting 1% meat and bone meal content in feeds (0.1 % when using the high sensitivity extraction kit) and as little as 0.05% of meat species content in meat products.
