Some specifications require food or feed products to be tested for GMO content. Both qualitative and quantitative GMO testing options are available using the DNA-based method, PCR (polymerase chain reaction). GMO tests based on PCR are used worldwide to verify contracts and to ensure regulatory compliance.
