This is where laboratory testing company Eurofins, located in Lidköping, Sweden, comes in. Fredrik Westerberg, Head of Food Chemistry at Eurofins, says they are working very hard right now. He points out that the number of DNA tests for horses has increased by several hundred percent since the news broke out in February.
Every day food samples leave Lidköping to be DNA tested. They are packaged at the lab and then shipped to the company's laboratory in Denmark or Germany.
