DNA Technology for Agribusiness

DNATEC was established in 2001 as the first government-funded key service center providing advanced diagnostic tools using DNA technology. The service center, located at Kasetsart University (KU) Kamphangsaen campus, was collaboratively founded by the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) and Kasetsart University.

Genetically Modified Organism (GMO)

GMO has become the big issue for the “kitchen of the world”, Thailand. Taking into consideration the fast turnaround time and its low detection limit (0.1%), DNATEC laboratory was the first and the most reliable laboratory for the quantitative analysis of GMO testing services in Thailand.

DNA marker development

For plants and animals with no molecular marker information, DNATEC also provides full-scale services for developing DNA markers, especially micro-satellite and AFLP markers. DNATEC also provides fast and reliable services in marker-aided selection (MAS).

DNA fingerprinting

DNATEC provides certificates of purity for hybrid seeds and its parental seeds. The verification of plant or animal species, especially species of tuna fish, have become the major trade barrier. Recently, DNATEC plays an important role in prohibited importing of cattle produced from BSE infected countries.

Purity testing of Aromatic Rice

In order to keep a premium standard of all aromatic rice exported from Thailand, purity testing for the exported Thai Hom Mali (Jasmine) and Thai Hom Pathum rice is rigid. DNATEC is one of the national assigned laboratories associated with the Department of Product Standardization.
