Pre-spotted plates


The JRC provides pre-spotted plates with element- and construct- specific methods for performing screening analysis and pre-spotted plates with event-specific methods for identifying soybean and maize authorised events. This decision-support system is designed for interpreting the positive (+), negative (-) and inconclusive (?) results of the tests.
