QuickComb™ Kit for QuickScan - Corn Bulk Grain - AS/AQ 036 TC


Two new analytes added to the comb!


Meeting the requirements of grain customers in global markets has challenged the grain industry to find new ways to efficiently determine and track the GM status of grain exports. We have responded with a simple and fast method to enable grain handlers to implement the changing regulations impacting the export of biotech grain.

With one simple Common Extraction™ method, testers can simultaneously test for multiple genetic traits instead of preparing a separate extract for each trait. Simply grind the kernels, extract the sample using tap water, drop in a QuickComb, and read the results.


QuickCombs are custom assembled to your requirements—any combination of any of the approved corn events can be provided.



There are two versions of the QuickComb:
  • Quantitative QuickCombs (AQ 036 TCK) are read with the QuickScan System when quantitative results are desired.

  • Visual QuickCombs (AS 036 TCK) provide easily understood visual “yes/no” results within 2-5 minutes.
