The Taqman® GMO Maize Quantification Kit is a food safety testing kit used to determine the number of copies of P35S promoter present in genetically modified organisms compared to the number of copies of maize present in any food or feed sample. The benefits of the Taqman® GMO Maize Quantification Kit over other commercially available products include:

• Efficiency—detection of small DNA fragments through use of Taqman® MGB probes
• Sensitivity—quantification limit of 20 DNA copies; detection limit of 3 DNA copies (maize and P355 systems)
• Flexibility—adapted to processed DNAs

The Taqman® GMO Maize Quantification Kit is effective in detecting the presence of genetically modified organisms through transgenic maize quantification, based on the detection of P35S promoter. The detection success of this promoter is due to this regulatory region being present in most of the transgenic events. In addition, the Taqman® GMO Maize Quantification Kit contains all necessary reagents for quantification and is optimized for use in all (Applied Biosystems®) real-time PCR instruments.

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.
