Determination Using PCR
Worldwide the number of authorised GMO crops is increasing. For a safe determination efficient screening methods are applied at GALAB. These determine DNA sequences contained in as many different GMO as possible. The PCR methods target regulatory elements or marker genes which do not occur naturally in these plants.
Safety in Screening
An annually updated list of all known authorised and non-authorised GMO is supplied by BVL, the national reference laboratory. Depending on the matrix, we combine the necessary analyses in a GMO screening to provide you with maximum safety. Our methods are constantly adjusted to latest developments.
If a screening is negative, this means that no known GMO is present in the sample. If the result is positive, further analyses regarding identification and quantification (if feasible) become necessary to assess marketability of the product.
