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.
Detects: Roundup Ready, YieldGard Corn Borer, YieldGard Rootworm, Herculex I, Herculex RW, Agrisure RW, LibertyLink, Viptera, and/or SmartStax corn
