At our DNA/GMO Laboratory, GMO testing is more than just "analysis" it’s an art form.
Headed by Chong Singsit, a longtime GMO and DNA veteran with a Ph.D. in genetics, OMIC USA Inc.'s DNA Laboratory is powered by an elite team of analysts from the scientific world. It operates on the forefront of growing demand for GMO analysis and detection, and is facilitated by University of Oregon biology graduate Dale Eakins.
The art of GMO testing comes from the ability to detain and carefully study the genetic materials of extracted DNA strands. Utilizing in-house Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) detection methods, we can check samples for qualitative "yes/no" results or for quantitative percentages of contamination.
When dealing with such precise requirements in the GMO analytical process, caution and accuracy are necessary at every step. Specifically designed and controlled rooms with positive and negative air pressure environments are a part of our facilities' schematics; this ensures reliable results by preventing contamination that might otherwise compromise the lab's sensitive instruments.
Continuous research on the latest developments in GMO detection methods and procedures enables OMIC USA's DNA Laboratory to rapidly and effectively integrate the latest technologies in order to meet U.S. and international GMO labeling and certification requirements.
Precision isn’t just in the instrumentation or environmental conditions it is also built into the founding principles of any good laboratory. OMIC USA Inc. is committed to offering its GMO customers the latest in quality and technology with rapid turnaround times, exceptional customer service, and the most competitive pricing in the market.
The DNA Laboratory also operates under ISO 17025 quality systems of management in GMO testing. Moreover, we work with the European Union, the Korean Food and Drug Administration (KFDA), the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW), the USDA, the FDA, and many U.S.-based GMO technology providers in an effort to continually enhance our internal quality systems and obtain third-party authentication and accreditation.
