BT Cry1Ab/Ac

Colloidal Gold      ·   GMO        ·      BT Cry1 Ab/Ac

BT Cry1Ab/Ac is a gene from Bacillus thuringiensis, often inserted into GMO crops like corn and cotton to confer insect resistance. While it reduces pesticide use, concerns linger. Pests might evolve resistance, rendering it ineffective. Moreover, its impact on non-target insects and ecosystems is unclear. There's evidence suggesting harm to beneficial insects and ecological balance. In short, while BT Cry1Ab/Ac offers pest control benefits, its risks, including resistance development and ecological disruption, demand ongoing scrutiny and management.

BT Cry1 Ab/Ac 

The LifeClues Rapid test Kit for Cry1Ab/Ac is intended to determine the presence of the Cry1Ab/Ac Bt endotoxins in genetically modified organisms.

Limit of detection: 2 ng/ml or 1 in 200 Kernels

Ultra Sensitive

Detect target molecules at ultra-low concentrations using colloidal gold nanoparticles.

High Specificity 

Engineered for precise interactions, our assays minimize false positives for accurate diagnostics.

Instant Reaction

With rapid colorimetric response, results are delivered swiftly, enabling prompt interventions.


To extract seed:


A single seed sample can be grounded and then extracted with water in a tube. The sample preparation is a crucial procedure for the proper function of the test. The ratio of water in milliliters (ml) to the weight of the seed sample (g) should be close to 1.25. Seal the tube cap and shake the tube gently for 15-25 seconds. Allow the solid material to settle to the bottom of the tube. And the sample will be ready for testing.


To extract leaf tissue:

Take a 1-inch x 1-inch leaf punches from the sample leaf tissue; push the leaf punches into the tube by a pestle. Then squeeze 10 drops of water into tube and grind the tissue using the pestle. The test is suitable for testing both leaf tissue and seed of corn, cotton, and other crops. Leaves, seedlings, or seeds must be ground and diluted with buffer or water. For best result, different samples should be diluted with water in different ratio. Let the paste set for at least 45 seconds before testing with the test kits.
