KEYWORDS
ABSTRACT
The described methods are based on detecting protein and mtDNA in feeds. Analyses targeting protein were based on ELISA tests, those detecting mtDNA were conducted using PCR. The method based on analysing mtDNA permits identification of components of animal origin (porcine, ovine, bovine) and semi-quantitative estimation of DNA content. These characteristics make it suitable for routine control of feeds. ELISA assays are less efficient for such analyses.
