Detection of GMO content in Crops by RTPCR method

Since last few decades it has been observed that the reach of GMO crops on our Platter has increased. Genetically modified crops are cultivated from seeds that are genetically engineered to increase the yield of various crops 

This increase in the GM food production has to meet various food laws and safety regulations globally to facilitate international trade. In India under Food Safety and Standards Act 2006, No person shall manufacture, distribute, sell and import any genetically modified (GM) article of food, except under the Act and regulations made thereunder.  

Recently FSSAI (The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India) notified that any food that has 5% or more GM ingredients should be label as GMO. (Genetically modified organism) 

Shiram Institute of Industrial Research provides cutting-edge solutions in the field of GMO analysis and the Study on GMO content present in Cotton Seeds, Soyabean Seeds, Rice Grains, Maize seeds, Millets, Sesame seeds, wheat grains, Rapeseeds, Groundnut, Raw cotton fibre is covered under our ISO/IEC 17025 scope and Export Inspection Council(for Rice Grains).
