Plant species identification
In addition to our GMO Screening, Identification and Quantification Kits, we also offer kits specifically for the screening and identification of plant species, which are also relevant for GMO analysis.
The identification of plant species is relevant for GMO analysis among other applications. A positive result from GMO screening can be the result of a combination of different GMOs in the sample or of a botanical impurity in the sample. In order to perform cost-efficient and less time-consuming follow-up analyses, it is often helpful to narrow down the list of possible GMOs in the sample. This can be done by excluding specific plant species.
