Abstract: The number of real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) instruments available has greatly increased over recent years. However, little information is available on the performance of validated quantitative methods when tested in different instruments. A study has been designed to evaluate the robustness of three validated methods for genetically modified organisms (GMO) quantification across six real-time platforms from four different suppliers. The performance of three validated methods for event-specific detection of Bt11 maize, DAS 59122 maize and MON 89788 soybean was evaluated on six qPCR platforms (ABI 7900 HT, ABI Prism® 7700 and ABI 7500 from Applied Biosystems; LightCycler® 480 from Roche; Mx3005P® from Stratagene; and iQ™5 from Bio-Rad). Method performance criteria were compared against European Network of GMO Laboratories method performance requirements for analytical methods of GMO testing. The latter comparison indicates that the criteria are fulfilled for most of the platforms and levels of GMO concentrations, though with minor exceptions. The analysis of variance (one-way) indicated that the quantification of GMOs was affected by the platforms, which did not respond consistently across GM levels. A two-way analysis of variance confirmed that there were significant interactions between platforms and GM levels. The pairwise comparison of the platforms performance indicated that some deviate significantly from others, though differences between methods were observed
