DNA Based Food Services
DNA is the only method truly capable of authenticating ingredients of biological origin, including plants, animals, fungi, and bacteria.
DNA-based species identification services improve the authenticity, safety, and quality of natural products, from living and dried raw materials to supplements, foods, and pharmaceuticals.
With a variety of processed food in emerging markets and exposure to innovative food culture and vested interests, there is a likelihood that the food we eat is contaminated or is compromised. Food adulteration is not uncommon and operates at a scale where National and International
regulatory bodies have set up standards of acceptance. A food that usually gets compromised while passing from the Farm to our Plate includes Fish and other Seafood, Beef, Chicken and Meat Products, Milk and Fruit Juices and honey, etc
Illegal Trade Identification
ABC uses the DNA markers to identify the species of animal and its authentication of food, plants, or microbial in the given sample. Comparing the sequence obtained at these markers with those of known controls, we can determine species of origin and its authentication.
ABC utilizes DNA based PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) method to detect the foreign insert in a given sample.
PCR Test: Copies a specific section of a plant's DNA billions of times in order to detect and quantitate a foreign DNA (GMO) inserted into a plant genome.
Uses short copies of DNA called primers that are complementary to GMO sequences to vastly amplify and quantitate GMOs.
ABC utilizes DNA based PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) method to detect the pork presence in a given sample.
PCR Test: Copies a specific section of a given sample’s DNA into billions of times in order to detect and quantitate a pork DNA.
Uses short copies of DNA called primers that are complementary to pork species’ DNA
sequence to vastly amplify and quantitate pork DNA.
