24 August 2021, IN: Agdia, Inc. (Elkhart, IN), a leading provider of agricultural diagnostic products and services, has commercialized an ImmunoStrip® assay for detection of DMO, CP4 EPSPS, Bt-Cry2Ab, Bt-Cry1Ac and Vip3A, transgenic proteins present in Bollgard® 3 XtendFlex® cotton.
Agdia’s new ImmunoStrip® detects the presence of the five transgenic proteins in Bollgard® 3 XtendFlex® cotton and was developed to be used on single-seed samples. This assay is easy to use and can be performed in the field or the lab by personnel with no previous diagnostic experience. Test protocol is straightforward, and results can be achieved in ten minutes with the visualization of five distinct test lines. Agdia claims this product does not cross-react with other commercially available transgenic traits available in cotton. This introduction is the 23rd ImmunoStrip® in Agdia’s comprehensive catalog of transgenic trait identification assays. High levels of market demand have driven this output, and Agdia maintains consumer demand is expected to continue.
