New York, January 29th, 2019 — Lifeasible, a biotechnology company specialized in agricultural science has recently announced the release of a series of GMO detection kit, aiming to detect the presence of GMO in food, animal feed, and pharmaceutical products. With this release, Lifeasible offers the complete solution including sample preparation, instruments, reagents, analysis software, technical support, instrument service, and GMO expertise.
Genetically modified organisms(GMO) are acronyms for genetically modified organisms and are commonly used to refer to genetically modified crops grown in many parts of the world. Genetic engineering provides the ability to confer desirable properties to plants, such as herbicide tolerance and/or viral or insect resistance, etc. Currently, more and more countries have taken legislative measures to require the detection of GMO in food, which has become an increasingly important aspect of quality control testing. Therefore, by providing a range of comprehensive solutions, we target to meet our customers’ accuracy and detection sensitivity requirements with high reliability.
There are two major approaches to GMO testing: detection of the new transgenic DNA in the cell using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technique, or detection of the new protein(s) by immuno-analysis. Determination of which type of test is most appropriate should be based on some factors involving the sample type, required assay sensitivity, GMO(s) to be analyzed, and intended market of the product. Lifeasible offers a series of GMO detection kit involving both approaches. Our innovative real-time PCR technology is based on the amplification of specific regions of the relevant GMO genome. The amplification product is detected using a target-specific fluorescent probe bound thereto. As the PCR product accumulates, the fluorescent signal from the bound probe increases. Monitoring the fluorescence intensity during the PCR run (ie, in real time) allows detection of the accumulated PCR product without having to reopen the reaction tube afterward. Our advantages of GMO detection include highly sensitive and specific detection of GMOs in various objectives and streamlined detection protocol, etc.
“Although preliminary tests have shown low environmental impact and toxicity, questions about the long-term environmental impact of GM crops and whether GM foods are safe to eat have sparked controversy”, said Ilsa Miller, the marketing director of Lifeasible,“ Some animal studies have shown that serious health risks such as infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, poor insulin regulation, and changes in major organs (including the gastrointestinal system) may be related to the consumption of genetically modified products. Therefore, our company devoted to developing a series of GMO detection kit to support the increasingly stringent safety and quality standards in the agricultural industry.”
As a biotechnology company, Lifeasible is specialized in agricultural science, aiming to offer a wide range of agro-related services and products for environmental and energy solutions. Lifeasible combines ecological innovation with ecosystem transformation and now leverages its expertise and strengths to create its unique platform for all leaders in agriculture, botany, biology, ecology, and environmental science. We have taken a step forward to achieve flexible and rapid development of new technologies and products while promoting the breeding process for farmers and breeders.
