EnviroLogix offers a variety of GMO cotton tests to support different testing objectives. EnviroLogix’ GMO cotton test kits improve plant breeders’ and fuzzy cottonseed processors’ operational efficiency by providing accurate GMO trait diagnostic results at the point of need.
Lateral flow test strips (trademarked as QuickStix™) have been developed to detect up to 5 traits on a single strip. QuickStix can be used to test cotton leaf, single seed, or bulk cottonseed for the absence or presence of certain GMO traits. In breeding programs, leaf tissue can be quickly tested to confirm the inclusion and/or exclusion of desired GMO traits in the greenhouse or in the field. Therefore, trait transmission can be cost-effectively confirmed, or alternatively, undesirable traits can be screened out using EnviroLogix QuickStix for cotton.
QuickStix have been combined into a comb format (trademarked as ComboComb™) to increase the throughput of single seed testing (known as genetic purity seed lot testing) for fuzzy cottonseed processors. ComboComb use significantly decreases the wait time per truck at fuzzy cottonseed processing locations thereby improving plant productivity.
QuickStix are also used for adventitious presence testing of bulk cottonseed samples to ensure that certain GMO traits are excluded from a seed lot destined for sale. For higher throughput trait confirmation or genetic purity testing, EnviroLogix also provides ELISA GMO cotton test kits.
