    IP and Plant Breeder Rights (PBR) services

    How you can protect your IP

    To help a breeder to protect their IP in a new variety of a crop, DArT can generate a completely unique DNA fingerprint of that new variety. We may also be able to identify specific unique qualities based on epigenetic variation, even diagnosing difficult to test quality attributes, like taste.

    Adulteration detection

    We can detect adulteration of a product with inferior material, while at the same time possibly identifying the contaminant. This is of assistance to breeders and IP owners, testing samples taken from the marketplace to check that no breaches of Intellectual Property – whether deliberate or inadvertent – have taken place.

    We have an immense database of whole genome profiles – containing well over 1000 different organisms – so we’re able to compare any sample with prior processed material.
