DNA Testing Services
Traceability has become a key requirement of many importing countries, precipitated largely by the finding of BSE in some national herds. DNA TraceBack® represents an innovative and cost-effective means of guaranteeing whole-chain traceability while underpinning claims such as ‘aged-verified’, ‘source verified’ or ‘Natural’.
Consumers have expressed preference for knowing where and how their food is produced and will pay a premium for the added assurance.
BRANDED MEAT PROGRAMS
Using DNA tests to verify the source and background of livestock is less costly and less error-prone than other technologies. This simplifies identity preservation in the supply chain, enabling cost-effective procurement and logistics of branded meat or certified production processes.
REDUCED SUPPLY DISRUPTION
Cost-effective, highly accurate DNA testing enables the industry to more effectively manage food safety outbreaks, reducing the potential for major market disruptions and price volatility.
DNA TraceBack® helps verify the country of origin of meat products.
IdentiGEN has exclusively developed a proprietary method to analyze ground beef to determine the origin of its constituent parts and the production batch of origin. This technological achievement can improve hazard management, reduce costs and unlock hidden value in source verification.
DNA traceability gives meat producers a tool to verify the source and genetic background of live animals procured, helping produce a more consistently high-quality meat product.
