EnviroLogix offers test kits for Duracade and MIR 162
In light of the recent news reports about concerns over Duracade corn and its impact on U.S. corn exports, EnviroLogix has developed a test for this trait, QuickStix Kit for eCry3.1Ab, the unique protein expressed in Duracade corn, which is also known as Event 5307.
EnviroLogix continues to offer a complete solution for grain handlers wishing to test for any GMO traits, approved or unapproved, that are available in the US market and beyond. In particular, the eCry3.1Ab test was developed several years ago and has been validated and approved by Syngenta for detection of the protein expressed in Agrisure® Duracade traited corn.
Many major grain buyers have announced they would not be accepting any Duracade at their facilities until further notice.
"A recent USGC press release expressed concern that inadvertent co-mingling of approved and unapproved traits could disrupt trade and cause more rejections of US corn in overseas markets," says Nick Davala, Business Unit Manager.
"EnviroLogix offers a complete solution for screening and identity-preserving incoming grain for elevators, mills, processors…basically anyone concerned about the acceptability of their end product in China or other overseas markets.
