Although PCR technology has obvious limitations, the potentially high degree of sensitivity and specificity explains why it has been the first choice of most analytical laboratories interested in detection of genetically modified (GM) organisms (GMOs) and derived materials. Because the products that laboratories receive for analysis are often processed and refined, the quality and quantity of target analyte (e.g. protein or DNA) frequently challenges the sensitivity of any detection method… Expand
Development of a qualitative, multiplex real-time PCR kit for screening of genetically modified organisms (GMOs)
TLDR
A multiplex real-time PCR kit was developed to detect the 35S promoter of the cauliflower mosaic virus, the terminator of the nopaline synthase gene of Agrobacterium tumefaciens, the35S promoter from the figwort mosaic virus and the bar gene of the soil bacterium Streptomyces hygroscopicus as the most widely used sequences in GMOs. Expand
A PCR-microarray method for the screening of genetically modified organisms
TLDR
The specificity for the detection of the different elements was found to be very good with no cross-reaction even in samples with two GMO present at different concentrations, and how they can facilitate the work of private and enforcement detection laboratories was discussed. Expand
Alternative DNA amplification methods to PCR and their application in GMO detection: a review
TLDR
Alternative nucleic acid amplification methods with promising characteristics are being developed fast and special focus is given to the possibilities of using these alternative methods for GMO detection in future, when expansion of GMOs both in diversity and frequencies will make current GMO detection systems difficult to operate.
