GMO testing

Grain handlers need a simple method to accurately segregate GMO and non-GMO shipments.

Since their introduction in the mid-1990s, genetically modified seeds have become increasingly popular among Canadian corn, soybean, and canola producers. GMOs are designed to limit insect damage to crops, or to provide crops with a resistance to herbicides that would otherwise kill the plants.

Since there is no visible difference between GMO and non-GMO seeds, testing plays an important role for grain handlers to segregate these commodities.

Until now, laboratory PCR or ELISA testing was the only way to get quantitative results with a low limit of detection.

With the AgraVision Pro Reader and AgraStrip Pro GMO strip test kits from Romer Labs, you can quickly and accurately determine the quantitative presence of Roundup Ready and Liberty Link traits at your site.
