mericon GMO Detection Assays

For real-time PCR detection of genetically modified organism DNA in food or animal feed

  • Highly sensitive and specific detection of common genetic constructs
  • Single, streamlined detection protocol for all targets
  • Dedicated mericon DNA isolation kit available
  • PCR run time of 82 minutes on the QIAGEN Rotor-Gene Q
  • Full license for PCR without additional costs

mericon GMO Detection Assays are a suite of kits for the target-specific detection of genetically modified organism DNA in food, animal feed, and pharmaceutical products. All of the assays use the same real-time PCR-based protocol. They are part of the comprehensive QIAGEN food testing portfolio, which also features dedicated sample preparation kits and assays for pathogen detection and ingredient authentication. mericon assays perform optimally on the Rotor-Gene Q, but have also been validated for block thermal cyclers.
