Identification of the species present in food and feed samples is a critical step for proof of authenticity, verification of origin, traceability of raw materials, and quality control of handling and cleaning processes in food production lines. The Ion 520 Food Protection Chip Kit allows identification of meat, fish or plant species present in all food types as a part of complete NGS Food Authenticity Workflow.

  • Rapid: run times of less than 5 hours
  • Simple: easy handling and loading of templated products for sequencing using the Ion Chef
  • Flexible: simultaneous analysis of multiple samples on a single chip using sample labeling with unique barcodes

The NGS Food Authenticity Workflow utilizes Ion Torrent™ Next Generation Sequencing technology to enable an untargeted screening approach making it possible to identify the species contained in a food sample by comparison with a DNA database of meat, plant or fish species.

As a part of the Ion Torrent™ sequencing workflow, the Ion 520 Food Protection Chip Kit electronically detects polymerase-driven base incorporation without the use of fluorescence, offers easy handling and loading of templated products for sequencing.
