Product info


Art. No.: S1011

Intended use

The test detects the relative pork DNA amount (Sus scrofa) to the total animal DNA content (amnions) in meat samples. Therefore the kit contains two PCR systems, one for detection of a pork specific gene (Sus 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 Roche LightCycler® 2.0, Roche LightCycler® 480 II, Roche cobas® z 480 Analyzer, Applied Biosystems 7500, Bio-Rad CFX96 and Agilent Mx3005P.


Dear customers,

we have started to provide the documents for our products in an electronic format. These are the Instructions for Use (IFU), the Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and the Certificate of Analysis (CoA). For batches placed on the market after 01 January 2024, you can find our documents on the eIFU portal

Art. NoS1011
Test format2 x 50 reactions
Sample preparationFor DNA-preparation of meat samples the use of SureFood® PREP Basic is recommended.
LOD (Detection Limit)The pork 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.
LOQ (Limit of quantification

The limit of quantitation depends on the concentration of the sample DNA used in the analysis. Forexample, if 50,000 target-sequence copies of the reference gene are present, the relative quantitation limit for pork DNA is 0.04 %.
