Abstract: GMO proteins content in maize flours or fresh crops can be easily assessed by the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) and immunochromatographic (lateral flow) strip tests commercially available. Therefore, ELISA can be foreseen as useful tool for screening, for control purposes and for traceability implementation. In order to highlight the importance of monitoring GMO proteins presence in food products and to investigate the performances of representative ELISA commercial kits, we evaluated three commercial kits by measuring the amount of Cry1Ab/Cry1Ac in IRMM certified reference materials.
