Brussels, 20 March 2002

Ispra (IT): The Food Products and Consumer Goods unit has developed a database, designed to allow direct and user-friendly access to information regarding methods of GMO analysis. The data reported in this database have been published in peer review journals or in reports from collaborative studies that are available in the public domain.

The database is organized into three sections:

* General information on the GMO and the corresponding method (i.e. matrix, producer company, plant species, etc);

* When available, specific information on the proficiency of the method and its validation status (i.e. specificity, sensitivity, LOD, linearity, working range etc);

* Essential technical information regarding the method (i.e. primer sequences, amplicon length, apparatus, control primer sequences, use of certified reference materials, method of amplicon verification etc).

The database allows queries for different types of information, e.g. for matrices, primers, GMOs and type of procedure.
