Reports and Deliverables

The first round of Decathlon´s stakeholder consultation actions has been successfully conducted. One of the aims of stakeholders’ involvement is to gather their views and opinions on the methods currently being developed within the project, thus understanding better if the work of Decathlon is in alignment with the needs and wishes of the relevant key actors that will use the Decathlon results.

The number of authorized GMOs has increased over time and with that the required number of analyses with qPCR has also increased. This increase in number of analyses is making the detection and quantification of GMOs in different samples more and more expensive. To address the issue of cost effectiveness, new multiplex ddPCR methods were developed within the Decathlon project. The performance parameters of the new multiplex methods were evaluated according to the MPPs set in Deliverable D6.1.
