Working Group PCR Analysis of VDLUFA-Section VI „Feedstuff Analysis“ publishes article about „GMO analysis of feeding stuffs – current challenges“
The Working Group PCR Analysis of the Section Feedstuff Analysis of the Association of German Agricultural Analytic and Research Institutes (VDLUFA) depicts the current challenges to the analyst for the testing of feed which are consisting, containing or produced from genetically modified organisms (GMOs). It particularly describes the challenges in testing of feed which arise from the Commission Regulation (EU) No 619/2011 and the rules for the "ohne Gentechnik” (“GMO-free”) labelling of food (according to the German Regulation: “EG-Gentechnik Durchführungsgesetz”). Also the difficulties in analytical testing of compound feed are examined with regards to botanical impurities of GMO as well as related sampling strategies. Furthermore the analytical detection of EU non-authorised GMO in feed and products produced from such GMO are considered.
