Arrow Scientific FeedChek test for detecting MBM in cattle feed

Tuesday, 16 August, 2011 | Supplied by: Arrow Scientific

The FeedChek test is designed to detect MBM in cattle feed to assist users to comply with regulations to prevent the spread of mad cow disease.

The test is a simple, highly sensitive lateral flow test for the detection of meat and bone meal in animal feeds.

With a 15 s extraction process and a 10 min assay time, the test provides fast results. No laboratory equipment is needed to perform the test.

It is claimed to be the only immunoassay to achieve 100% specificity, sensitivity and accuracy when testing for total processed animal proteins.

In order to meet user-specific requirements, the test incorporates two tests into one test strip. One test indicates the presence of any MBM (avian and mammal) and the second test indicates the presence of mammalian-derived MBM in the sample.

It is claimed to be the only test available that provides results for both mammalian and poultry meat. The test’s easy-to-use format is more sensitive and much faster than labour-intensive, costly and time-consuming microscopic methods: and unlike other immunoassays, does not require boiling or weighing of samples.
