We offer a quick and inexpensive solution. The solution is Vegan Control™, a qPCR based System for the detection of animal traces in food.

Type of PCR

Taqman® Assay based on FAM and HEX labeled probes.

Recommended Use / Scope

Can be used in research and industry for detection of meat/animal based contamination of vegan foods. For research use only! Do not use for clinical diagnostic or testing of patient samples.

Sample Requirements

Isolated total DNA from potentially contaminated vegan food serves as starting material. DNA can be extracted from sample material using DNA extraktion kits e.g. ExtractNow™ Vegan Control (Cat. No. 607-1050) or user method.

Required Consumables

1.5 ml reaction tubes, PCR reaction tubes, sterile filter tips

Required Lab Devices

qPCR cycler with FAM™ and HEX™ filter, variable microliter pipettes, benchtop centrifuge

Time to result

approx. 150 minutes

Shelf Life and Storage

Components can be stored at +2 to +8 °C for at least 12 months. After rehydratisation the reagents must be stored at -18 °C.
