A new method based on droplet digital PCR was developed by researchers at National Institute of Biology, Slovenia and Norwegian Veterinary Institute, for cost-efficient quantification of genetically modified soybean. Soybean is, next to maize, the most important and abundant GM crop, with 11 GM soybean lines authorised in the EU, and four more in the process of authorisation. With that being said, there is a great demand for a more time and cost-efficient method for quantification of GM soybean in food and feed samples.
