The prevention of epidemic diseases and BSE requires the availability of reliable techniques for the proof of the appropriate heat treatment of animal meal. In this study an ELISA based method has been evaluated currently representing the only method that can be used to investigate proper heat treatment of the animal meal itself. In general sufficient sterilization conditions are controlled using temperature and pressure measures installed at the rendering plant.
