Trichinellosis is a zoonosis most often caused by the nematode Trichinella spiralis. Usually benign in animals, it is a severe disease in humans, causing intestinal symptoms and muscle pain as the roundworms migrate from the gut into the muscle tissues.

Humans become contaminated by ingesting undercooked infected meat, most typically pork. As such, identifying infected animals is vital to public health.

Identification is based on direct detection of larvae at slaughtering, either by trichinoscopy or muscle detection, or by serological screening to detect Trichinella spp. antibodies. The Trichinella serum ELISA detects antibodies to T. spiralis, T. pseudospiralis, T. britovi and T. nativa in serum and meat juice of swine, wild boars and horses.
