GMO Containment in the Field
Genetically modified organisms (GMO) are regulated in each country. Therefore, each country must resolve the issue of taking out GMO bioreporters in the field.
Model of Bioreporters in the Field
In Switzerland, we have obtained permission A120851-07 from the Federal Office of the Environment to use specific vials with caps with a self-sealing septum to take the bacteria in the field. The following diagram is our current model of working with bioreporters to analyse water arsenic levels in the field.
We worked with EPFL Biosafety Office to present our project in Bern to obtain the GMO license to take the bioreporter in the field.
