The mericon Ruminant Kit is designed for the target-specific detection of ruminant matter in food and animal feed ingredients. The assay uses a real-time PCR-based protocol and forms part of the comprehensive QIAGEN food testing portfolio, which also features dedicated sample preparation kits, and assays for pathogen and GMO DNA detection. The mericon Ruminant Kit performs optimally on the Rotor-Gene Q, but has also been validated for block thermal cyclers.
