A rapid method for PCR detection of bovine materials in animal feedstuffs.

Rapid identification of bovine materials in animal feedstuffs is essential for effective control of a potential source of bovine spongiform encephalopathy. We have developed a rapid method for the detection of the presence of bovine materials in animal feeds. Animal feed samples were prepared by a Chelex-100 treatment method, then subjected to polymerase chain reaction (PCR) detection. The assay can be completed in 2 h including 30 min for sample preparation, 35-65 min for PCR cycling and 30 min for gel electrophoresis. This method is not only rapid, simple and consistent, but also avoids a hazardous waste disposal issue associated with a previously described guanidine thiocyanate (GuSCN) extraction-PCR method.[1]
