This project was built on earlier projects to develop a real-time qPCR assay for the quantification of horsemeat and pork adulteration in processed beef matrices.It had as its objectives to conduct an intra-laboratory validation, followed by an inter-laboratory (collaborative) validation of the horse-in-beef and pork-in-beef qPCR assays. These were successfully carried out and a draft SOP produced.

The project report is available here, and both the report and SOP will be available in the Research and Methods section of the website in the near-future.
