|Abstract: ||In accordance with article 32(1) of Regulation (EC) No 882/2004, the European Union Reference Laboratories for feed and food are responsible, among others, for “providing national reference laboratories with details of analytical methods, including reference methods”. In this frame, a “Compendium of Reference Methods for GMO Analysis”, was produced jointly by the EURL-GMFF and the ENGL in 2010, aiming at providing a technical state of the art of the detection methods applied in GMO analysis that have been validated according to international standards.
The methods collected have been selected based on their reported compliance with ISO 5725 international standard and/or the IUPAC protocol.
Each method has then been described in a comprehensive summary which provides the essential information related to the validated method. Not all details are given for each method but all necessary references are provided for further information about each method. This Compendium contains 79 DNA-based reference PCR detection methods; in follow-up editions, it is foreseen to extend the scope of this “Compendium of Reference Methods for GMO Analysis” to include also protein-based detection methods and extraction methods.
The present document is a revised edition aligning the “Compendium of Reference Methods for GMO Analysis” with the online database released at http://gmo-crl.jrc.ec.europa.eu/gmomethods/.|
