LUGO - Spanish biotechnology company AMSlab - in conjunction with animal rights group PETA - has developed a test to tell whether garments have been made with the use of dyes made from crushed insects.

The test for carmine, a red dye made from dried female carmine mealybugs and other cochineal insects, has been added to the quality assurance firm's AMSvegan testing kit which companies can use to prove their products are 100 per cent animal-free.

It will be used as part of the tests required before garments can carry the 'PETA-Approved Vegan' logo - the animal rights group's way of helping shoppers source animal-free clothing, shoes, and accessories.
