TaqMan™ GMO Screening Kit

The TaqMan® GMO Screening Kit analyzes DNA extracted from food and feed samples for the presence of the main transgenic regulatory regions. This real-time PCR kit contains all reagents (except for the template DNA) required for the detection of genetically modified organisms (GMOs ). In addition, the kit contains an Internal Positive Control (IPC) to identify possible PCR inhibition. The benefits of the Taqman® GMO Screening Kit over other commercially available products include:

• Flexibility—GMOs detected in DNA obtained from ANY food or feed source
• Accuracy—an internal positive control (IPC) rules out inhibition during qPCR process
• Speed—results provided in less than 3 hours

The TaqMan® GMO Screening Kit is capable of multiplex amplification of Endogenous Vegetal Control, Internal Positive Control, and these regulatory regions:

• P35S/CaMV
• TNOS/A. tumefaciens
• P34S/FMV

All of which make possible the detection of significant events such as soya MON89788.

The TaqMan® GMO Screening Kit provides all of the necessary reagents for testing 48 samples and is optimized for use in all Applied Biosystems® real-time PCR instruments. And because it is a real-time PCR kit, no electrophoresis is required. In addition, the kit offers extremely high sensitivity, detecting targets with only 3 DNA copies.

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.

TaqMan™ GMO Maize Quantification Kit

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.

Taqman® Roundup Ready Soya Quantification Kit

TaqMan™ Roundup Ready Soya Quantification Kit

The TaqMan® Roundup Ready Soya Quantification Kit is a food safety testing kit used to determine the percentage of Roundup Ready soya against the total amount of soya present in a DNA sample. This real-time PCR kit contains all reagents (except for the template DNA) required for the quantification of Roundup Ready soya. The benefits of the TaqMan® Roundup Ready Soya 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 and detection limit of 3 DNA copies
• Flexibility—adapted to processed DNAs

The TaqMan® Roundup Ready Soya Quantification Kit consists of plasmid-containing targets for the endogenous soy gene, known as lectin, and for the transgenic event (GTS-40-3-2) present in Roundup Ready soy. This soy accounts for approximately 80% of all soy cultivated worldwide and is considered to be the most widespread transgenic event.

The TaqMan® Roundup Ready Soya Quantification Kit is optimized for use in all Applied Biosystems® real-time PCR instruments.

TaqMan™ GMO Soy 35S Detection Kit (Applied Biosystems™)

This kit contains reagents needed to reliably detect the presence of genetically modified organism (GMO)-specific DNA sequences in seed, grain, processed foods and their ingredients.
• Universal assay detects and quantifies all approved genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in Europe and the vast majority of GMOs approved in other countries.
• Fluorogenic 5' nuclease assay using TaqMan® probes provides accurate and reproducible quantitative results.
• Label license conveys the PCR service rights for GMO testing when used in conjunction with an Authorized Thermal Cycler, so no additional royalties are payable.
• Comprehensive controls provide high confidence in results.
• Innovative GMO quantitation software allows users to quickly and easily determine the percentage of GMO content.
• Offers the complete solution including sample preparation, instruments, reagents, analysis software, technical support, instrument service, and GMO expertise.

The Complete Solution
The TaqMan® GMO Detection and Quantitation Kit is the first of a full product line of GMO assays in development that can detect the presence of GMO-specific DNA sequences in seed, grain, and processed foods and their ingredients. The TaqMan® GMO kit is part of a highly sophisticated but user-friendly system that includes DNA sample preparation, automated PCR amplification and signal detection, data analysis, and quantitation software, thus eliminating the need for personnel trained in molecular techniques.

Reliable TaqMan® Chemistry
The system uses the patented fluorogenic 5' nuclease method for multiplex detection and quantitation, the latest innovation in real-time PCR technology. It targets the Cauliflower Mosaic Virus 35S promoter, a GMO-specific sequence present in all GMO soy and maize events approved for use in food by the European Union, and in the vast majority of GMO events approved by other countries. Both the European Union and Japan view this method as the premier technology for quantitating GMO content in food. Other TaqMan® kits are available for the detection and quantitation of food-borne pathogens, including Salmonella and E. coli 0157:H7.
