If you have questions or requirements not addressed by the services listed here, please contact a Genetic ID account manager for more information.

Test Selection

Selection of the proper test involves many considerations, including your sample type, the likely sources of GMO, turn-around time needed, buyer requirements, export markets, and government regulations. The primer sets you choose will depend on your product, whether it is a broad-spectrum (cross species) or single species sample. We recommend that you consult one of our account managers before making your testing decision. Their expertise will help you arrive at the most effective and economical solution for your specific testing requirements.

GMO Detection Categories

  1. Single-Species GMO detection provides total GMO content of a single species and is most suitable for products such as grains, flours, soy isolates, etc., where there is a single source of GMO.
  2. Broad-Spectrum (cross species) GMO detection determines GMO content from one or more sources of GMO. It is useful for determining GMO content in multiple ingredient products, but it will not identify the genetically modified species or variety.
  3. Variety-Specific GMO detection identifies individual GMO varieties such as Roundup Ready®.

Levels of Quantitation

  1. GMO Qualitative Analysis reports presence or absence of GMO, but will not quantify how much GMO is present.
  2. GMO Semi-Quantitative Analysis reports GMO content above or below one or more thresholds. (e.g. 0.1 and 1%)
  3. GMO Real-Time Quantitative Analysis reports precise quantitative results of GMO content.

Turn-around Time Options

Standard Results due 5 business days later (evening)
3 Day Results due 3 business days later (evening)
2 Day Results due 2 business days later (evening)
Rapid Results due next business day (evening)
Express Results due next business day (noon)

Multiple Tests on the Same Sample

If a sample requires more than one test, the additional testing fees may be reduced if no further DNA extraction is required.

When ordering multiple tests, either concurrently or as an upgrade, please call for more information.
