Quantitative GMO detection PCR methods

Qualitative GMO detection PCR methods

Submission of method for validation to ENGL advisory group

Objective of the advisory group is to complete the portfolio of available methods and make the European system able to cope with the new developments in GMOs. High priority should be given to methods closing an analytical gap or anticipating future GM global developments potentially entering the European market, offering an added value (e.g. cost/time efficiency, performance…) in comparison to previously adopted strategies and complying with ENGL methods acceptance criteria as specified in the document Definition of minimum performance requirements for analytical methods of GMO testing.

For each proposed method, please Fill the Form here provided and send it by e-mail to engl-secretariat@jrc.ec.europa.eu

GMOmethods app for iPad

Released the GMOmethods app for iPad on 20-12-2011.


GMOMETHODS is the EU Database of Reference Methods for GMO Analysis based on the "Compendium of Reference Methods for GMO Analysis", assembled by the Molecular Biology and Genomics Unit (MBG) of the Institute for Health and Consumer Protection (IHCP), nominated European Union Reference Laboratory for Genetically Modified Food and Feed (EU-RL GMFF), in collaboration with the European Network of GMO Laboratories (ENGL).

Disclaimer

This EU Database of Reference Methods for GMO Analysis has been developed by the Joint Research Centre as European Union Reference Laboratory for GM Food and Feed (EU-RL GMFF), in collaboration with the European Network of GMO Laboratories (ENGL).

It aims at providing a list of reference methods for GMO analysis that have been:

- validated in a collaborative trial, according to the principles and requirements of ISO 5725 and/or IUPAC protocol

or

- verified by the EU-RL GMFF in the context of compliance with a EU legislative act.

All efforts have been made to ensure that the information provided is accurate and correct but no responsibility can be taken for the data and information reported in the method validation publication.

The JRC does not own any Intellectual Property on the data and information reported in the method validation publication. Such data and information are owned by method developers. Some legal provisions on confidentiality and data protection are provided in article 30 and article 31 respectively of Regulation (EC) No 1829/2003.
