Back to top


The GMO Extraction Kit enables fast and easy purification of DNA for use in food safety testing for genetically modified organisms. The kit is capable of isolating highly purified DNA from a wide variety of different sample types without the use of toxic reagents. The benefits of the GMO Extraction Kit over other commercially-available products include:

• Performance—isolation of extremely pure DNA (A260/A280 >1.8)
• Specificity—adapted to food samples for transgenic material analysis
• Efficiency—total assay time is less than 2 hours, requiring minimal handling steps

The GMO Extraction Kit employs silica-based DNA purification using spin column technology to provide samples for GMO testing. The kit has been specifically adapted for transgenic material analysis of a wide array of sample matrices, including raw materials, processed food, and feed. Effectively removing inhibitors, the GMO Extraction Kit provides isolated, highly-purified DNA, quickly, reliably, and safely.

The development and manufacture of this kit occurs through a partnership with IMEGEN (Instituto de Medicina Genomica), which has a long history of GMO research and development.
