Remarks Nowadays the demands for most sensitive animal species detection in particular of pork is becoming of increasing interest. The molecular biological real-time PCR method, based on specific DNA amplification detects highly specific DNA and DNA fragments of the relevant species. The sensitivity is based on the detection system and the food matrix and processing grade. Determining Ct values of the real-time PCR run, relative quantification is possible. However systems are calibrated on raw muscle tissue. In this ring trial stable gelatin is used as a matrix for qualitative detection of low amounts of present porcine DNA.
