Eurofins can provide cutting edge solutions to its clients in the fields of GMO analysis, GMO kits, consultancy and Identity Preservation / Traceability. Our State-of-the-art methods which over years have proved to be robust and reliable and a unique knowledge of the GMO market situation have made Eurofins Genescan the global market leader in GMO analysis.
An unparalleled pool of knowledge and expertise in the field of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) analysis and consultancy and an experienced technical staff offers a complete portfolio in the agricultural and food industry areas: analytical services, consultation and GMO test kits. This not only grants the highest possible security and reliability to our clients, but also provides for valuable time and cost advantages.
Our analytical services comprise the whole range of GMO testing - from screening and identification to precise quantification of trace components of GMO material.
GMOs are detectable with different methods. Yet only the detection of DNA with polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and the detection of proteins with immunological methods reach the required high sensitivity standard.
Whereas protein detection is known for short turnaround times and very focused technical effort, the exceptional advantages of PCR are accuracy, sensitivity and specificity. In addition to protein testing Eurofins specialises in qualitative and quantitative DNA analysis with PCR and offers the most comprehensive portfolio for GMO analysis of feed and food.
Our experience in sample preparation of complex materials, GMO testing with qualitative and quantitative PCR, and GMO testing with immunological methods makes Eurofins a qualified partner for the determination of GMO contents in food, feed and seed. Our laboratories are accredited according to ISO 17025 and comply with the high standards of our internal quality management systems.
Food and Feed Testing Kits: The diversity of Eurofins Genescan's diagnostic product line helps you to choose and establish tests quickly and easily in your own lab.
Identity Preservation (IP): Eurofins provides extensive consulting for all questions of GMO control and establishes complete systems for traceability and identity preservation.
