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 GA21 Maize Detection Kit

The foodproof SL GMO GA21 Maize Detection Kit allows qualitative detection of GA21 corn by real-time PCR. The use of GA21 maize as food and feed is approved in the EU since 2008. However, cultivation is still not approved in the EU, and the label “not for cultivation” is required on feed and other products.
