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 Screening Kit, 4 Target

The foodproof GMO Screening Kit detects and differentiates the 35S promoter (cauliflower mosaic virus), the NOS terminator (Agrobacterium tumefaciens), the bar gene (Streptomyces hygroscopicus) and the FMV promoter (figwort mosaic virus). This multiplex real-time PCR kit can be used to detect genetically modified plants in food and animal feed. Additionally as a control, the kit allows the detection of plant DNA in the sample.
