Spiralis is present in only about 1 hog out of 10,000. This low prevalence is a result of animal husbandry practices that include the elimination of feeding raw or undercooked garbage containing infected meat, infected rodents, wildlife, or infected hog carcasses. Most young pigs are fed a combination of soybean meal and corn until they are sent to slaughter; in some places, hogs are fed mostly potatoes and byproducts, sugar beets, or forage. In countries that conduct meat inspection for trichinae, infection from pork is rare.

Melting-curve analysis (an assessment of the dissociation characteristics of double-stranded DNA during heating) has been used to identify and differentiate 26 Biology of Foodborne Parasites different foodborne species and subtypes within a sample. 72 In the case of intercalating dyes such as SYBR Green and SYTO 9, the dissociation of the DNA strands releases the dye, thus returning it to its nonfluorescent state. Using this process, the rate of dissociation of the double-stranded DNA template can be measured by a reduction in fluorescence over time, and the temperature that causes the greatest rate of change in fluorescence, corresponding with the period at which double-stranded DNA dissociation is greatest, is inferred to represent the melting temperature of the amplicon.
