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 Maize Multiplex Detection Kit
(MON88017, NK603, MIR162)

The foodproof SL GMO Maize Multiplex Detection Kit (MON88017, NK603, MIR162) allows qualitative detection of genetically modified maize MON88017, NK603 and MIR162 by real-time PCR. The multiplex PCR is carried out simultaneously in a single reaction using sequence-specific probes. The individual events are identified in different detection channels. The simultaneous detection of several GMO events in a sample is a fast and cost-effective solution for GMO detection in food and feed.
