    In July 2010 a rapid alert was issued by Spain concerning the presence of blood plasm in milk formula ("KUOVO") for calves. The blood plasma was detected by a microscopic staining method using tetramethylbenzidine (TMB). RIKILT investigated the suspect research sample by applying the standard research method for animal proteins and several additional staining methods, including TMB (macroscopic and microscopic).
