Intended use:

The SureFood® ANIMAL QUANT Equus real-time PCR detects the relative equine DNA amount to the total animal (amnions) DNA content in meat samples. Therefore the kit contains two PCR systems, one for detection of an equine specific gene (Equus detection gene) and one for the detection of an animal gene (Reference gene).

General Information:

The real-time PCR assay can be used with established real-time PCR instruments. The technical validation of instruments was performed on Agilent Mx3005P, Applied Biosystems 7500, Bio-Rad CFX96, Roche LightCycler® 480 II and Qiagen Rotor-Gene Q.

Test format 2x 50 reactions
Sample preparation For DNA-preparation the use of SureFood® PREP Basic kit is recommended.
LOD (Detection limit) The equine specific PCR has a limit of detection of < 5 DNA-copies. The assay limit of detection depends on sample matrix, processing grade, DNA-preparation and DNA-content.
The limit of quantitation depends on the concentration of the sample DNA used in the analysis. For example, if 50,000 target-sequence copies of the reference gene are present, the relative quantitation limit for equine DNA is 0.1 %.
