The Bovine QPCR Kit is designed for the target-DNA specific detection of bovine matter in food and animal feed ingredients. The assay uses a real-time PCR-based protocol with fluoresce-probe to detect target DNA. It can detect as few as 10 copies of the target DNA in a reaction and it exhibits high specificity for bovine (Fig.1-2, and Table 1). No cross reactivity is observed with other animal species (See Table 2). The detection of target DNA confirms ingredient authenticity or prevents food fraud, ethical issues, or health concerns.
The kit is shipped on ice, and stored at -20°C for long-term storage. Shelf life of 12 months after receipt.
