This report is a follow up on the use of the ruminant PCR test that enabled from 1st June 2013 on the reintroduction of non-ruminant processed animal proteins in feed for aquaculture. Due to a certain frequency of rapid alerts with respect to detection of ruminant DNA in aquafeed or feed material intended for aquafeed and the resulting complaints of the industrial sectors related to the activities of production of the by-products or production of aquafeed, it was checked if really the method gives rise to an abnormal rate of false positive results.
70 new micrographs illustrating insect meals and helping you for hydrolysed feather meal detection.
Dear NRL and IAG colleagues,
The EURL-AP team is pleased to announce you that an upgrade of the EURL-AP micrograph collection has been realised. The new release focus on insect meals from different species (Tenebrio molitor, Gryllus domesticus, Locusta migratoria, Alphitobius diaperinus,...) which are today the potential candidates for animal feeding. The selection of micrographs illustrates the diversity of particles that can be found in such products. In addition new pictures on the difficult detection of hydrolysed feather meals will certainly help you in identifiying such structures. Enjoy discovering this latest release !
This year the NRL network will meet on the 21 and 22 May 2014 in Riga. Participation for EU Member States is mandatory. Detailed information and agenda will be posted on the intranet.
