35S GMO Screen Kit (96)

Cat#
GMO-108
Product Name
35S GMO Screen Kit (96)
Product Overview
This is a real-time PCR-based detection kit of 35S promoter in food, animal feed, and pharmaceutical products.
Description
The 35S GMO Screen Kit (96) is designed for the target-specific detection of the 35S promoter of the cauliflower mosaic virus in food, animal feed, and pharmaceutical products. The assay uses a real-time PCR-based protocol.
Storage
GMO Detection Kit are shipped on dry ice. Multiplex PCR Master Mix and ROX dye should be stored immediately at –20°C upon receipt, in a constant-temperature freezer. All remaining not reconstituted kit components should be stored at 2–8°C and protected from light. Stored under these conditions and handled correctly, assay performance remains unaffected until the date of expiration printed on the quality control label inside the kit box or envelope. Reconstituted reagents of GMO Detection Kit should be dispensed into aliquots to avoid more than 5 freeze–thaw cycles, and stored at 2–8°C for short-term storage (1 month) or –20°C for long-term storage.
Kit Components
PCR Assay Screen 35S; Internal Control; Positive Control; Multiplex PCR Master Mix; Nucleic Acid Dilution Buffer; RNase-Free Water; 50x ROX Dye Solution
Scientific Background
The 35S GMO Screen Kit (96) is designed for the qualitative detection of the 35S promoter sequence originating from the cauliflower mosaic virus. The 35S promoter is a frequently used constitutive promoter for driving expression of foreign genes in genetically modified plants, especially corn. Detection of GMOs using real-time PCR is based on the amplification of a specific region of the relevant GMO genome. The amplified product is detected using target-specific fluorescent probes that bind to it. As the PCR product accumulates, there is an increased fluorescent signal from the bound probes. Monitoring the fluorescence intensities during the PCR run (i.e., in real time) allows the detection of the accumulating PCR product without having to re-open the reaction tubes afterward.
