GMO Testing (qPCR) in Food
Genetically Modified (GM) foods are those in which the genetic material (DNA) has been modified in a way that does not occur naturally. This technology is called “modern biotechnology” “gene technology”, “recombinant DNA technology” or “genetic engineering”. Genetically modified food and food products have been sold in the market for decades.

GMO Testing in food is the process of analyzing food products to determine whether they contain Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). GMOs are organisms whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques.

There are different methods used for GMO testing, and these methods primarily involve the detection of specific DNA sequences or proteins that are associated with genetically modified traits. Commonly employed testing methods are PCR, ELISA and NGS methods.
GMO Food Testing

Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)

PCR is a widely used technique that amplifies specific DNA sequences. GMO testing using PCR involves extracting DNA from the food sample and then amplifying and detecting specific DNA sequences that are indicative of the presence of genetically modified traits.

Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA)

ELISA is a technique that utilizes antibodies to detect the presence of specific proteins. In GMO testing, ELISA can be used to identify proteins that are commonly expressed in genetically modified crops.

Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS)

NGS is a high-throughput DNA sequencing method that can provide comprehensive information about the genetic makeup of an organism. It can be used in GMO testing to sequence the DNA of a food sample and compare it with known sequences associated with genetically modified traits.

Why test at AMMAGENOMICS?

We at AMMAGENOMICS have developed our own rapid, high-throughput PCR tests to detect GMOs in food and food products and the results are given in a quick turnaround time. Most food testing labs use a conventional method which involves comprehensive, laborious, and time-consuming testing procedures and the results take several days to weeks. But at AMMAGENOMICS with our advanced technology, we give the results in a few hours. Detection of GMOs in food and food products is very important for health.

Regulatory authorities in different countries have established guidelines and regulations regarding the labeling and testing of GMOs in food. These guidelines determine the threshold levels for the presence of GMOs that require labeling, as well as the methods and standards for GMO Testing.

It’s worth noting that GMO Testing is a complex process and requires specialized laboratory facilities like us with trained personnel to ensure accurate and reliable results. The aim of GMO Testing is to provide information to consumers and regulators about the presence or absence of GMOs in food products, allowing them to make informed choices and ensure compliance with labeling requirements.

GMO testing in chennai

What are the most common GMO food/food products?

The most common GMO foods are cornstarch, corn syrup, corn oil, soybean oil, canola oil, or granulated sugar.

Some of the Genetically Modified fresh fruit and vegetables are potatoes, summer squash, apples, papayas, and pink pineapples.

Alfalfa is Genetically Modified with a gene that makes the crop resistant to the herbicide Roundup.
Baby formula food often contains GMO milk and soy products which is very harmful to newborn babies.

Prolonged consumption of GMO food leads to allergies, antibiotic resistance, immune suppression, cancer, loss of nutrition, abnormal growth, early puberty among girls, infertility, and other health issues.

In GMOs, there are several events in corn, soy, cotton, tomato, sugarcane, etc. All these are approved events and some are not. We can test for you both approved events and unapproved events. This will help you in exporting and importing food materials in compliance with Government regulations.

At AMMAGENOMICS, we do PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test for deliberate or accidental contamination of approved or unapproved GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) in foods for organic certification, imports and exports, corn, soy, processed seeds, grains, 35ss promoter, NosT terminator, and other genes as required by regulatory bodies and give results in a quick turnaround time and also provide independent verification for traders in confidence.

We do the PCR method in multiplex and also do the sequencing of GMO events. We can look at unapproved events of GMOs by sequencing and doing chromosome walking. We can also do site-directed or targeted gene analysis.

Avoid GMO food and safeguard your body! We care for your Health!
