Robust methods for GMO detection ready at hand
Date:11/10/2010

A new Reference Report published today by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) lists 79 reference methods for GMO analysis which have been validated according to international standards. This Compendium, developed jointly by the European Union Reference Laboratory for Genetically Modified Food and Feed (EU-RL GMFF) and the European Network of GMO Laboratories (ENGL), presents the technical state of the art in GMO detection methods. Each method is described in a user-friendly way, facilitating the implementation of GMO legislation by official control bodies.

Presenting the Reference Report today, the Director of the JRC Institute for Health and Consumer Protection (IHCP), Elke Anklam, said: "The JRC has been working for more than 10 years on the analysis of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in food and feed and has acquired internationally-recognised expertise in this field. The publication of this "Compendium of Reference Methods for GMO Analysis" represents a major milestone in GMO analysis and will be a useful tool facilitating practical implementation of the reference methods by GMO control laboratories".

International cooperation for harmonised reference methods for GMO analysis

In line with the EU legislative framework for GMOs, the "Compendium of Reference Methods for GMO Analysis" published today has been developed in close collaboration with the European Network of GMO Laboratories (ENGL). This network is formed by almost 100 national laboratories active in GMO detection and provides a unique forum of European scientific expertise to support harmonisation in GMO analysis.

The following selection criteria were applied to decide on inclusion of GMO detection methods, which were validated in international collaborative trials during the period 1999 to 2009:

Considering the largest common denominator in the present global framework of GMO analysis, this first issue of the "Compendium on R
