Event ID & Zygosity

Sidebar Image

DNA-based event identity testing confirms the presence of any events of interest in a seed lot or field population. DNA-based testing is the only way to definitively confirm the presence of events of interest.

DNA-based zygosity testing determines the number of copies present for the events of interest. Testing individual plants for zygosity identifies them as homozygous (two copies), hemizygous (one copy) or negative for the events of interest.

Eurofins BioDiagnostics’ approach combines laboratory expertise with a broad knowledge of production and breeding programs, allowing us to provide comprehensive yet economical testing and results interpretation.
