  1. Qualitative screening of GMO derived products. Using Veriti® 96-Well Fast Thermal Cycler we perform end-point qualitative PCR analysis of GMO derived products.
  2. Quantitative screening of GMO derived products. Using 7500 Fast Real-time PCR system we quantitatively measure the amplification of DNA using fluorescent dyes through a process known as real-time polymerase chain reaction (Real-Time PCR) or quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR).
  3. Meat speciation using gene specific oligonucleotide makers. We analyse meat and meat products derived from Gallus, Porcine, Bovine and Ovine among many others species.
  4. Molecular diagnoses of horticultural plant pathogens. We use PCR based methods for early detection of bacterial, viral and fungalinfections in horticultural crops including flowers.
  5. DNA fingerprinting of rice using simple sequence repeats (SSRs) Microsatellites.
