canola GMO testing

Roundup Ready & InVigor canola



overview

  • Low cost, rapid assessment of canola crops for the presence of GMO
  • Results in 5-minutes or less
  • Liberty Link or pat/pat (InVigor) and RoundUp Ready or CP4 EPSPS canola
  • Test leaf, seeds or bulk grains
  • Comply with regulations and GMO market requirements for canola

 

how it works

Testing for the presence of GMO traits in your canola is quick and easy with the QuickStix system from EnviroLogix. The equipment can be used by any person with minimal training, making it easier than ever for growers to comply with industry GMO standards.

See “Manuals and Guides” for detailed information on sampling and testing.

 

Canola GMO Testing StripBulk Grain: A quick overview of the testing procedure:

  • Step 1: Collect a 20 gram bulk grain sample;
  • Step 2: User a blender to crush the bulk grain sample;
  • Step 3: Add tap water to the crushed sample;
  • Step 4: Add solution to a sample vial;
  • Step 5: Place a QuickStix test strip into the sample vial and allow 5 minutes to settle;
  • Step 6: Interpret the results by observing the signals and guides on the test strip.

 

Leaf & Seed: A quick overview of the testing procedure:

  • Step 1: Extract a leaf and seed sample and place inside the Disposable Test Tube;
  • Step 2: Grind the leaf and seed inside tube with the pestle for around 30 seconds;
  • Step 3: Add Extraction Buffer to the test tube and repeat the grinding for another 30 seconds;
  • Step 4: Place a QuickStix test strip into the sample vial and allow 5 minutes to settle;
  • Step 5: Interpret the results by observing the signals and guides on the test strip.

 

interpreting the results

The QuickStix technology is a qualitative GMO test. That is, QuickStix only informs you whether a GMO trait is present or absent in a sample.

Development of the Control Line within 5 minutes indicates that the strip has functioned properly. Any strip that does not develop a Control Line should be discarded and the sample re-tested using another strip.

If the sample extract contains the GMO protein, a second line (Test Line) will develop on the membrane strip between the Control Line and the protective arrow tape. The results should be interpreted as positive for GMO protein expression.

If no Test Line is observed after 5 minutes, the results should be interpreted as negative. A negative result means the sample contains no GMO, or less GMO than is typically expressed in the tissues of canola plants.
