The DTS GMO laboratory has been audited by NATA and in 2003 achieved accreditation to ISO 17025 for the detection of genetically modified organisms.
Using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology, analysts can detect the presence of genetically modified material at very low levels and provide qualitative and quantitative GMO testing in raw materials and/or processed foodstuffs for the Australasian and South-East Asian regions.
We have a close partnership with GeneScan Europe, who pioneered GMO testing and have provided analytical services to the international food and agricultural industry for over a decade. This means we have access to a European bioinformatics team that scans the world for new GMOs and
their possible entry into the marketplace.
The most effective way to determine the presence of GMOs in seeds, food and feedstuff is to detect the presence of modified DNA. DTS’s GMO Services can test for all commercialised GMO plants in the world and standard screening tests can detect over 90% of GMO plant varieties in the marketplace.
Our ability to offer the very best GMO testing technology
for the Australasian food and agricultural industries means we can respond to customer demands with internationally recognised GMO testing methods and provide results to the lowest possible limits of detection.
