New Test Can Identify 97 Percent of GMOs

By Derrick Broze – Liberty Beat –

A new paper in the American Chemical Society’s journal Analytical Chemistry promises to identify close to 97 percent of currently known genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in crops. The MACRO test ( multiplex amplification on a chip with readout on a microarray) combines two other previously known genetic methods to identify nearly twice as many GM crops as other tests. The new method was created by Li-Tao Yang, Sheng-Ce Tao, and a team of researchers, and discussed in the paper, “ “MACRO: A Combined Microchip-PCR and Microarray System for High-Throughput Monitoring of Genetically Modified Organisms”.
