A genetically modified organism (GMO) is an organism whose DNA has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. Many countries around the world have enacted laws to restrict the levels of GMOs in food products. These commonly include soybean and maize.


Manufacturers in the food and feed sectors are frequently required to manage the traceability of items of GMO origin throughout the entire production chain and to define the labeling requirements for products containing them

Applying specific analytical experience, Mérieux NutriSciences' experts provide qualitative and quantitative PCR investigation services for GMO research on foods.
