An efficient method has been developed to identify meat species by using laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). To improve the accuracy and stability of meat species identification, multiplicative scatter correction (MSC) was adopted to first pretreat the spectrum for correction of spectrum scatter. Then the corrected spectra were identified by using the K-nearest neighbor (KNN) model. The results showed that the identification rate improved from 94.17% to 100% and the prediction coefficient of variance (CV) decreased from 5.16% to 0.56%. This means that the accuracy and stability of meat species identification using MSC and LIBS simultaneously improved. In light of the findings, the proposed method can be a valuable tool for meat species identification using LIBS.
