Vegan label claims can be supported using the Vegan Control kit, which detects meat and animal derivatives in food products.

Vegan Control is a simple qPCR-based system for the rapid detection of animal traces in a variety of foods. The target sequence is a mitochondrial gene (cytochrome b) which is shared by all animal species and present as a multicopy gene. Targeting such a region enables sensitive detection of small amounts of animal DNA.

The Vegan Control kit shows a PCR detection sensitivity of ≤0 pg/PCR of animal DNA. It is possible to detect animal-derived contaminants in a vegan food product down to a threshold level of 0.1% when the kit is combined with ExtractNow Vegan Control. This DNA extraction kit was especially optimised for the extraction of DNA from different kinds of food samples.

The kit contains all the necessary components to set up the qPCR: a lyophilised master mix including hot-start Taq polymerase, primers, probes and dNTPs; internal control DNA and positive control DNA; a rehydration buffer; and PCR-grade water. The assay is based on the TaqMan principle and works with FAM and HEX labelled probes.
