Phytocontrol offers you a complete range of identification and quantification of Genetically Modified Organisms.

Our expertise and our latest generation analytical equipment allow you to comply with all regulations.

A genetically modified organism (GMO) is a living organism whose genetic heritage has been modified by the insertion into the genome of one or more genes of interest: target events, which can be framed by markers, sequences called"Promoter" or"Terminator".

In addition to the essential detection of P35/TNOS and RRS/RRS2 sequences, Phytocontrol has developed new screening of Mono and Multi-events GMOs by real-time PCR for the species Soya, Maize, Rapeseed, Rice, Potato, Linseed, Beetroot. These screenings allow the identification and quantification of all GMOs, including third and fourth generation GMOs on all products: seeds, raw materials and processed products.

Phytocontrol is accredited by COFRAC according to the LAB GTA 02 perimeter relating to GMOs.

Analytical know-how in molecular biology combined with perfect regulatory control

The method allows the screening of the 7 markers P35S, TNOS, FMV, Bar, NptII, Pat, Cry1ab, or the search for genes of interest and/or target markers. This analytical know-how in molecular biology combined with a perfect regulatory control make Phytocontrol the ideal partner to guide and accompany you in your GMO monitoring plan with regard to the various European regulations:

  • Decree N°2012-128 defining the labelling of foodstuffs from qualified "GMO-free" sectors
  • Directive 2001/18/EC on the deliberate release into the environment of GMOs (experimental field study and placing on the market)
  • Regulation (EC) No 1829/2003 on GMOs for food and feed.
  • Regulation (EU) No 619/2011 establishing the methods of sampling and analysis for the official control of feed.
  • Council Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 of 28 June 2007 on organic production and labelling of organic products.
