Sample preparationFor DNA-preparation of raw material the use of SureFood® PREP Basic (Art. No. S1052) and for highly processed food and feed the use of SureFood® PREP Advanced (Art. No. S1053) is recommended. SureFood® PREP Add On (Art. No. S1055) is intended to be used for the extraction of DNA from raw materials as well as processed food and feed with sample weight of 2 g. It is used in conjunction with the SureFood® PREP Basic.
LOD (Detection Limit)The SureFood® GMO ID DAS-40278-9 Corn real-time PCR has a limit of detection of < 5 DNA copies.
This is equivalent to approx. 0.01 % for unprocessed corn grain.
