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 Qubit Food Protection Starter Pack is designed to quickly and specifically measure DNA quantity. The Qubit Fluorometer and Qubit dsDNA BR Assay Kit work together to accurately quantify double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) extracted from the sample and allow dilution of the DNA to the required volume for testing.
