GMO Testing

Ensure processed foods comply with destination market rules for GMO with DNA-based screening and PCR testing.

The use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is still controversial in many countries. Failure to ensure GMO-free status for food and feed products in these markets can result in costly recalls and reputational damage.

High-level independent verification ensures products are genuinely GMO-free. However, detection can be difficult in a wide variety of products – bread, flour, soymilk, tofu, vegetable oils, etc. – due to degradation during processing.

We have many years of experience in testing for GMO in food and feed products. Our experts utilize the latest standardized technologies to detect and quantify GMO in a wide variety of food and feed samples. They simplify the process of detecting GMO through the use of DNA-based qualitative screening solutions that detect most genetically modified plant varieties. In addition, we offer DNA-based quantitative testing through real-time PCR and droplet digital PCR (ddPCR).

SGS is recognized as the benchmark for quality and integrity when testing for GMO. Wherever you operate in the world, our network of fully accredited state-of-the-art laboratories are available to help you ensure the GMO-free status of your food and feed products.
