Investigen, an Alameda, CA, company, says it has produced the fastest and most inexpensive DNA-based GMO-testing services now available.
The new testing unit was demonstrated at the recent Natural Products Expo-East in Washington, DC.
Investigen can test the presence of 47 GMO events approved by APHIS for commercial sale in the United States.
Investigen offers a premium testing service that gives results in less than four hours, according to company officials.
Investigen's standard testing service for all GMO events gives results within eight hours for a very reasonable price. It also offers event-specific detection and can help with identity preservation. The company will release a self-testing kit based on the same technology in the coming months.
