Promoter: Intertek India
Intertek India has inaugurated an AgriTech laboratory at Jeedimetla, dist. Hyderabad, Telangana on 27th May, 2016. High-tech DNA analyses will be performed by this purpose-built laboratory for the agri-biotech, plant seeds breeding, and plant seeds production industries. The Intertek laboratory has already an operational ISO 17025 accredited capacity for wet-chemistry and micro-biology testing services. Together with the new DNA testing capabilities, synergies will be provided for new and existing customers and will also allow Intertek Agri Services to expand in multiple testing segments in India e.g. crop testing, pathogen testing, livestock and commodity testing. Within each segment, DNA-based tests are provided to customers for their breeding of new or improved traits (marker assisted breeding) and/ or control of existing traits (quality control).
