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 T25 Maize Detection Kit

The foodproof SL GMO T25 Maize Detection Kit allows qualitative detection of T25 maize (LibertyLinkTM) by real-time PCR. T25 maize has been approved since 1998 in the EU, both for cultivation as well as for use in food and feed. The approval for the cultivation of T25 maize in the EU expired in 2007, but the approval of 1998 remains valid until a new decision is made.
