Methods of detection for GMOs
Research for improving sampling approaches and validation of detection methods for use in the enforcement of the GM food and feed regulation.

This research project will develop rapid and simple genetically modified organism (GMO) screening methods using multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) approaches and endpoint detection using lab-on-a-chip capillary electrophoresis.
In this project nine novel assays/methods to aid the detection of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in food/feed have been developed. Once successfully validated, the methods will be made available, worldwide, to improve the ability of enforcement laboratories to detect the current and next generation of GMOs present in food/feed.
This initial proof of concept study is designed to demonstrate the potential of Quantitation Using Informative Zeros (QUIZ) as a high-throughput methodology to measure Genetically Modified (GM) presence in food.
This project aimed to determine the potential of QUIZ for the quantification of genetically modified (GM) material in food by further development and testing of the methodology established in a previous proof of concept study (G03025).
