Microbiology of the food chain - Detection of Trichinella larvae in meat by artificial digestion method (ISO 18743:2015)
This International Standard specifies a method that is applicable for the detection of Trichinella spp. muscle stage larvae in meat of individual animal carcasses intended for human consumption. It is applicable for the examination of meat from domestic and sylvatic animal species which can be infected by nematodes of the genus Trichinella. This method does not allow the determination of the species or genotype of detected parasites; identification can be made by molecular methods.
