DNA Barcoding Applications

DNA Barcoding Applications

DNA Barcoding as means for species identification is especially useful if only parts or fragments of the organism are available e.g. fish fillets or processed materials.

For example species authenticity is especially important for the fish industry where high premiums are paid for certain fish. Also the ornamental fish industry could use this service for fish in the larval stage.
Especially customs are confronted with fragmented or processed animal products which cannot be attributed to a species any longer.

DNA Barcoding can provide the answers for all these questions.
