Species Identification

Food and feed, but also products such as fibers and woods are often provided with wrong composition and origin information. A species identification or a correct assignment to the animal and plant group is therefore of great importance for producers, traders and consumers.

Biolytix can perform an appropriate analysis strategy and a large selection of PCR procedures as well as DNA sequence analysis and MALDI-TOF analysis, a mapping and identification of various animal and plant species.

Due to the high specificity and sensitivity of the methods, non-native material can be detected and quantified even in small amounts.

Biolytix offers the following animal-specific proofs:

  • Donkey
  • Chamois
  • Deer
  • Dog
  • Horse
  • Rabbit
  • Beef
  • Roe
  • Sheep
  • Pork
  • Wild boar
  • Goat
  • Ruminant
  • Poultry
  • Duck
  • Chicken
  • Ostrich
  • Turkey
  • Fish
  • Salmon
  • Mussles

Our analytical methods also allow animal material to be assigned to more than 1000 different animal species.

Plants, fungi, bacteria and viruses can also be identified. In this subject area, we continuously develop new detection methods.
