Various DNA-tests are available to determine if a specific animal species is present in food. For each species questioned, a dedicated DNA-test is performed. A combination package is available which contains two species types: the combination Horse and Cattle.

Turn Around Time
The turn-around-time of a test depends to a large extent on the logistics of sample transportation to the laboratory. After receiving the sample at the test location, you can normally expect the result within 10 working days. A longer delivery time applies to tests carried out by a Partner Lab.
