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® Plant Detection LyoKit

The foodproof Plant Detection LyoKit is intended for the rapid detection of plant DNA from raw material, processed food, feed and seed samples. In combination with the foodproof GMO Screening LyoKits, the assay is important as a process control to eliminate risk of false-negative results because of degraded DNA. The assay complies with ISO 21569 and the German Food Law § 64 LFGB for the detection of genetically modified DNA sequences.
