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 510™ & Ion 520™ & Ion 530™ Food Protection Kit – Chef (2 sequencing runs per initialization) allows identification of meat or fish species present in all food types as a part of a complete NGS Food Authenticity Workflow.

  • Complete: provides template preparation and chip loading reagents
  • Simple: simplifies NGS with ready-to-use, disposable reagent cartridges for sequencing.
  • Rapid: enables fast and simple Ion Chef™ and Ion GeneStudio™ S5 instrument set-up with less than 15 minutes hands-on time.
  • Flexible: compatible with the Ion 510™, Ion 520™, and Ion 530™ chips, maximizing flexibility.

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.

The Ion 510™ & Ion 520™ & Ion 530™ Food Protection Kit-Chef (2 sequencing runs per initialization) is used in conjunction with the Ion Chef™ Food Protection  Instrument and Ion GeneStudio™ S5 Food Protection System  to enable automated template preparation and sequencing of libraries.

The Ion 510™ & Ion 520™ & Ion 530™ Food Protection Chef Kit contains pre-packaged single-use template and sequencing reagent cartridges for use with the Ion Chef™ Food Protection  System and Ion GeneStudio™ S5 Food Protection  System delivering an automated workflow for sequencing of eight loaded chips with complete run traceability. This kit accommodates two sequencing runs per initialization and is suitable for use with the SGS All Species ID Meat DNA Analyzer kits I and II and the SGS ALL Species ID Fish DNA Analyzer kits I and II.
