GMO Analyses

a&t food control laboratory ensures protection of human health through GMO analyses.

Modifying genetic properties of plants take place through the modification of plant DNA by transferring a special gene from a different source (for example from a microorganism) in a laboratory.

In Turkey, if the feeds contain one or more GMOs at least in 0.9 percent in total, they are considered as GMO substances. This is not allowed in the case of foods.

GMO and products are definitely forbidden from;

* Being placed in the market without approval,

* Being utilized or allowing their use in breach of biosecurity board decisions,

* Production of genetically modified plants and animals,

* Being used outside the purpose and area determined within the scope of market rules by the biosecurity board,

* Being used in baby foods and baby formulae, follow on formulae and foods and additional substances provided for feeding babies and small children.

After obtaining a negative result for 35S- NOS- FMV scan at our GMO Laboratory, plant specific scans are being performed and if the results are positive, then scans are performed in 8 types in total, 5 from soy and 3 from cotton, and quantity assays can be performed.  These eight kinds of type determination and assay analyses are approved and accredited by the Ministry.

All sample batches are subject to quality control measurements to guarantee the accuracy of the data. a&t displayed accomplished z-scores for the GMO analyses of various food samples during the competence tests it has participated in over the recent years.
