Colloidal Gold      ·   GMO        ·      G2 EPSPS

G2 EPSPS, a glyphosate-tolerant enzyme derived from bacteria, is frequently introduced into GMO crops like soybeans and cotton. It provides resistance to glyphosate-based herbicides, facilitating effective weed control. This trait enhances crop yields and reduces labor and herbicide costs for farmers. Moreover, G2 EPSPS-expressing GMOs allow for more flexible and sustainable weed management practices, reducing the need for tillage and promoting soil conservation. Additionally, glyphosate is considered less harmful to the environment compared to some alternative herbicides. However, concerns about herbicide resistance development in weeds persist, necessitating careful stewardship practices and diverse weed management strategies. In summary, G2 EPSPS in GMOs offers benefits such as improved weed control, cost savings, and reduced environmental impact, though prudent management is essential to address potential risks and ensure sustainable agricultural practices.


The LifeClues G2 EPSPS Rapid test Kit is intended to determine the presence of the G2 EPSPS protein in genetically modified organisms.

Limit of detection: 1 ng/ml or 1 in 1000 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 10:1. 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. Once the solid material is settled, the sample will be ready for testing.


To extract leaf tissue:

Take 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.
