Ruminant-specific Testing

Genetic ID's ruminant specific test selectively detects members of the ruminant family by targeting a genetic sequence that is found only in this family, which includes cows, sheep, goats, deer and elk.

We test on food and feed products such as meat, frozen ready-to-eat meals, animal feed, bone meal, fishmeal, fish oil, flavors, gelatin, pet food, spray-dried animal plasma, and more.

 Our PCR test captures all ruminant species
Our ruminant specific test captures all species within the ruminant family and can help companies
comply with current international regulations prohibiting animal products in feed.


Genetic ID is a USDA-APHIS approved laboratory

China currently prohibits import of ruminant-containing processed animal products that can be used as pet food or animal feed ingredients.  Processed animal products include poultry meal, rendered poultry fat, porcine meal, lard, spray-dried porcine blood products, and porcine protein concentrate.  

Genetic ID is a USDA-AHPHIS-approved laboratory for ruminant testing of processed animal products for export to China.
