Description / Abstract:

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.

The method described in this International Standard is to be used in conjunction with the guidelines in the OIE Diagnostic Manual and by the ICT for Trichinella testing and the inspection of carcasses intended for human consumption, unless it has been demonstrated by other means that the animal was not at risk for exposure to Trichinella.

The artificial digestion/magnetic stirrer method is considered to be the "gold standard" because it has proven to give the most reliable results in validation studies.

Provided that equivalence with the method described within this International Standard can be documented, alternative methods may be used for analysis.
