This proposed technical method specifies a real-time polymerase chain reaction (real-time PCR) method for the qualitative detection of duck-specific DNA derived from food and feed. It requires extraction of an adequate amount of PCR amplifiable DNA from the relevant food and feed matrix and specific primer/probes unique for detection of duck material derived from mallard duck (Anas platyrhynchos) and spot-billed duck (Anas zonorhyncha). Cross detection of white-winged duck (Asarcornis scutulata), tufted duck (Aythya fuligula), muscovy duck (Cairina moschata) and Mandarin duck (Aix galericulata) is expected.
