GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms)

Genetically modified crops cover over 10% of global agricultural land. More than one hundred different genetically modified plants are grown on over 160 million hectares in more than 29 countries. The main producing countries are the USA, Brazil, Argentina, Canada and India. Soybeans are the most highly cultivated genetically modified plant, followed by corn, cotton and canola. According to EU Regulation 1829/2003 and 1830/2003, GMO content of more than 0.9% in foods and ingredients must be labeled. Other countries and regions have similar rules with similar limits. For reliable analysis of GMOs in food and animal feed, BIOTECON Diagnostics offers a broad range of solutions.


foodproof® GMO A2704-12 Soya Quantification Kit

The foodproof GMO A2704-12 Soya Quantification Kit enables the quantification of genetically modified soya A2704-12 (OECD unique identifier ACS-GMØØ5-3) by real-time PCR in food and feed samples. In the European Union A2704-12 is approved for food and feed use and expresses the pat gene which confers tolerance to glufosinate-based herbicides. The quantification of A2704-12 is required by VLOG for raw material or straight feeding stuffs if A2704-12 is detected in the sample.
