GMO Screening

Most genetic modifications use a small number of regulatory DNA sequences to control the expression of the inserted genes and are common to the majority of genetically modified crops.  Microbac provides qualitative or quantitative methods that identify the modified regulatory DNA in GMOs, based on client needs.  These tests provide a robust GMO screening for ingredients or finished products.
