In the last  years, given the strong commercialization of new genetically modified products or products containing genetically modified ingredients, increasingly precise and reliable GMOs research techniques have been developed.

The Reg. EC 1829/2003 and 1830/2003 govern the labeling and type of GMO foods, making it mandatory to report the presence of GMO on the label.

The following products are excluded from the aforementioned regulations and therefore derogate from the obligation to label:


“Feed containing material which contain, consist of or are produced from GMOs present in a proportion not exceeding 0.9% per feed and for each feed of which it is composed, provided that this presence is accidental or technically unavoidable” ( art 24 Reg 1829/2003).

The analysis are performed with the Real time PCR method.
