The Kenya Bureau of Standards intends to adopt the International Standard as detailed here below:  

ISO   13495: Foodstuffs — Principles of selection and criteria of validation for varietal identification methods using specific nucleic acid

SCOPE: This International Standard specifies molecular tools for generating molecular profiles of varieties of plant species, enabling varietal identification, i.e. confirmation of identity in relation to one or more references.

This International Standard is applicable to various matrices, seeds, leaves, roots, industrial products composed of only one variety. Matrices presented in the form of mixtures of varieties (such as purees, compotes, flours) are excluded from the scope of this document.

This International Standard does not deal with genetic purity.


ISO 16577: Molecular biomarker analysis —Terms and definitions

SCOPE: This International Standard gives the definition of terms used in the International Standards published in the frame of ISO/TC 34/SC 16.


ISO 16578Molecular biomarker analysis — General definitions and requirements for microarray detection of specific nucleic acid sequences

SCOPE: This International Standard defines terms for the detection of nucleic acid sequence of interest using DNA microarrays for detection of nucleic acid.

This International Standard is applicable to all methods that use microarrays for detection of nucleic acids.

This International Standard specifies the verification processes and parameters for molecular biology analysis, including the detection and identification of specific nucleic acid sequences.
