Food Testing

Food TEsting

We address food safety and hygiene through the testing and analysis from raw materials, during their procurement and handling, within manufacturing units, during distribution and finished product testing.

Why do you need to do gmo test?

  • Reduces potential human health impacts, allergens, transfer of antibiotic resistance, etc.
  • Reduces domination of food production biopiracy
  • Stops violation of natural organisms intrinsic values
  • Stops mixing GM crops with non-GM confounds labelling attempts
  • Helps those countries which have objections to consume GM products

GMO Detection in Food

Food businesses are likely to have in place procedures such as proper trails to provide assurance that all ingredients supplied and used in food products meets the requirements of food legislation. A genetically modified organism (GMO) is any organism in which the genes have been modified by recombinant DNA technology. A plant is considered genetically modified when foreign genes are inserted to enhance nutrition value, to impart disease, herbicide or insect resistance. Any food product, animal feed that contains ingredients originated from genetically modified plants or organisms, should be labeled as genetically modified (GM).

GMO Detection Procedure

ABC utilizes DNA based PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) method to detect the altered DNA insert in a given sample.

PCR Test:

  • Uses short copies of DNA called primers that are complementary to GMO sequence to vastly amplify and quantitate GMOs.
  • Copies a specific section of a plant’s DNA billions of times to detect and quantitate an altered DNA (GMO) inserted into a plant genome.

Why do you need this test?

  • Helps countries with strict regulations on pork consumption
  • Fast and Reliable
  • Ensures consumer protection

Pork Detection in Food

Detection of pork meat adulteration in “halal” meat products is a crucial issue in the fields of modern food inspection according to implementation of extremely strict procedures for halal food labeling. ABC aims to detect and quantify pork adulteration in both raw and cooked manufactured by applying an optimized species-specific PCR procedure.

Pork Detection Procedure

ABC utilizes DNA based PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) method to detect the pork traces in a given sample.

PCR Test:

    • Copies a specific section of given sample’s DNA into billions of times in order to detect and quantitate a pork
    • Uses short copies of DNA called primers that are complementary to pork species’ DNA sequence to vastly amplify and quantitate pork DNA.
