Anisakids is a parasite that is found in fish, anisakids larvae may go active in the human digestive system by eating raw or undercooked contaminated fish. Human anisakiasis is a public health problem whose incidence is increasing in recent years, preventive measures to control the disease are therefore required.

Anisakis Kit Real-Time PCR can detect the presence of Anisakis spp Pseudoterranova in fishery products in both fresh and processed products, this is a quick and reliable way for the control and prevention of Anisakids contamination that can be applied to any fishery product regardless of the degree of processing it has undergone.
