Plant Real



The Plant Real kit is designed to quantify DNA from vegetal species. The assay targets a segment of the chloroplast DNA and was designed to detect vegetal species used in food production or animal feed but can be also used for other applications.
The Plant Real kit detects plant species, such as maize (Zea mays), rapeseed (Brassica napus), barley (Hordeum vulgare), common oat (Avena sativa), rice (Oryza sativa), common wheat (Triticum aestivum), rye (Secale cereale), soybean (Glycine max), sunflower (Helianthus annuus), dinkel wheat or spelt (Triticum aestivum subsp. spelta), peanut (Arachis hypogaea), almond (Prunus dulcis), pumpkin (Cucurbita maxima), chickpea (Cicer arietinum) and lentil (Lens culinaris). The assay further detects common hazel (Corylus avellana), common walnut (Juglans regia), pecan (Carya illinoinensis), and Cashew nut (Anacardium occidentale). Performance of the assay with these plant species was verified experimentally.
