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® SL GMO Bt11 Maize Detection Kit

The foodproof SL GMO Bt11 Maize Detection Kit enables qualitative detection of genetically modified Bt11 corn by real-time PCR. Imports of Bt11 maize have been authorized in the EU since 1998. Starting in 2004, Bt11 maize was approved in the EU for use in food and feed. However, cultivation is still not approved in the EU, and the label “not for cultivation” is required on feed and other products.
