The TaqMan® Roundup Ready Soya Quantification Kit is a food safety testing kit used to determine the percentage of Roundup Ready soya against the total amount of soya present in a DNA sample. This real-time PCR kit contains all reagents (except for the template DNA) required for the quantification of Roundup Ready soya. The benefits of the TaqMan® Roundup Ready Soya Quantification Kit over other commercially available products include:
• Efficiency—detection of small DNA fragments through use of Taqman® MGB probes
• Sensitivity—quantification limit of 20 DNA copies and detection limit of 3 DNA copies
• Flexibility—adapted to processed DNAs
The TaqMan® Roundup Ready Soya Quantification Kit consists of plasmid-containing targets for the endogenous soy gene, known as lectin, and for the transgenic event (GTS-40-3-2) present in Roundup Ready soy. This soy accounts for approximately 80% of all soy cultivated worldwide and is considered to be the most widespread transgenic event.
The TaqMan® Roundup Ready Soya Quantification Kit is optimized for use in all Life Technologies® (Applied Biosystems®) real-time PCR instruments.
The development and manufacture of this kit occurs through a partnership with IMEGEN (Instituto de Medicina Genomica), which has a long history of GMO research and development.
