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 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 S5™ Controls Kit Plus provides templating controls for use with the Ion GeneStudio™ S5 Food Protection instrument.

The Ion GeneStudio™ S5 Food Protection Instrument is a semiconductor-based next generation sequencing (NGS) system which, when used as part of the Thermo Scientific Next Generation Sequencing Food Authenticity Workflow allows identification of species present in even the most challenging sample types.
