Bangor University - Informational poster

Analysis conducted Bangor University produced improved protocols for detecting adulteration in commercial rice samples labelled as “Basmati”. These protocols were used to demonstrate that high levels of adulteration were present in UK commercial samples collected by the UK Rice Association in 2003. This foundation work underpinned a test court case in 2005. 

Standard Operating Procedures for both microsatellite and InDels were developed and optimised. They form the basis of most Basmati authentication testing used in enforcement in Europe and Asia at present. We have recently screened available rice standards with novel KASP assays.
