SPECIAL TESTS

GMO Detection

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).

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

  • 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.
  • Uses short copies of DNA called primers that are complementary to GMO sequence to vastly amplify and quantitate GMOs.

Benefits

  • 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.

Who Should Avail This

  • Food Industries
  • Confectionary products manufacturers, traders & consumers
  • Canned & frozen food items
  • Plant origin products – manufacturers, traders & consumers
  • Maize & soya products – traders & consumers
  • Processed food products – traders & consumers
  • Animal feed for detecting GM content
  • Cosmetic Products

Pork Detection

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

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

  • 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.

Benefits

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

Who Should Avail

  • Food regulatory authorities
  • Food industries
  • Confectionary products, manufacturers & traders
  • Canned and frozen food traders, manufacturers and consumers
  • Processed food products traders, manufacturers and consumers
  • Cosmetic products traders, manufacturers & consumers
