Reveal® for Sheep is an immunochromatographic lateral flow assay used for the rapid, qualitative detection of sheep meat in raw meats and processed raw meat products, such as sausages or burgers. The test can detect as little as 0.5% sheep meat in a non-target meat matrix.

Reveal for Sheep is intended for use by quality control personnel or other personnel familiar with handling meat samples only in an industrial food manufacturing or preparation context. Because of the problems of adequate sampling and extraction of meats, it is not suitable for the testing of foods to be consumed in the home or in a restaurant by consumers.

Reveal for Sheep is a single step lateral flow immunochromatographic assay. The sample extract is wicked through a reagent zone, which contains antibodies specific for sheep serum albumin proteins conjugated to coloured particles. If sheep serum albumins are present, they will be captured by the conjugated antibodies. The sheep antibody particle complex is then wicked onto a membrane that contains a zone of antibody specific for sheep proteins. This zone captures the complex, allowing the particles to concentrate and form a visible line. If no sheep is present, no line will form. The membrane also contains a control zone where an immune complex present in the reagent zone is captured by an antibody, forming a visible line. The control line will always form regardless of the presence of sheep, ensuring the strip is working properly.
