According to national and international law, a living organism is called a Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) if its genetics are altered in a way that would not occur naturally in nature.

This is done using genetic engineering techniques that allow the transfer of genes from one living object to another and/or alter gene sequences in different species (transgenics).

There are different types of GMOs, many of which contain common sequences (e.g. FMV, 35S promoter and NOS terminator) used for initial screening. Qualitative and quantitative analyses can be performed using international methods for many maize, soybeans, cotton, rice, canola, sugar beet etc.

Our technical experts perform qualitative and quantitative GMO analyses in all food, feed and additives matrices by PCR method.
