Horse relative quantitation - Version 2.1

Scope

The method has been applied to and is validated for DNA extracted from samples that consist of raw horse meat in a raw beef (meat) background. Results can be expressed relative to the amount of raw horse meat in a raw beef (meat) background on a gravimetric (w/w) basis.
