Application Note: Authentication of Basmati Rice Using SSR-PCR and QIAxcel Advanced
23 March 2018

Approximately 46% of sold Basmati rice is adulterated. Import of Basmati rice into the European Union must comply with several regulations and requires an import certificate.  Therefore, analyses that enable identification and quantification of Basmati rice are of great importance. In this application note, identification of Basmati rice is demonstrated with the QIAxcel Advanced capillary electrophoresis system.
