Florida Lab Accredited for GMO Testing

In this article for the Bradenton Herald, Janelle O’Dea talks about SRQ Bio’s recent ISO certification to do GMO testing in it’s Sarasota facility. This is news likely to be repeated across the nation as labs come on board with the science required to carry out certified testing. It’s one thing to mandate labeling and testing (89% of Americans favor the mandate, according to the Mellman Group), but quite another to put in place the necessary resources to carry out said tests. I believe it will be important to have these (certified) resources locally throughout the country to expedite testing, especially since some of our trading partners require it as well. SRQ Bio tests human food, pet food, and cosmetics as well.
