Species Identification

Currently, plant species are identified by measuring levels of chemical compounds. However the same level of compounds may be present in different species.

DNA identification relies on the unique genetic fingerprint of each species. This method is accurate and also faster and cheaper than the current means of identification. It can detect in a product the presence of expected plant species as well as any contaminant species.

Progenus proposes species identification analysis using PCR/qPCR and sequencing approaches for the following species:

  • Soy
  • Bean
  • Other species on request

Progenus is also capable of designing tailor-made tests for plant species identification.
