CSP Labs has developed SNP-HRM assays to determine hybrid purity. These assays are inexpensive when compared to other methods including isozymes, total proteins, grow outs, RAPD and SSR markers available for hybrid purity. SSR markers are very reliable but are relatively expensive.
Our SNP-HRM assays allow us to process a large number of samples in less time. Since our cost to run these assays is significantly lower as compared to other DNA marker tests, this gives us the ability to pass the savings on to our customers. Our customers will not only pay less for the tests but they will also get better turnaround time.
At this time our SNP-HRM assays are working well for tomatoes. Assays for other crops including watermelon, melon, pumpkin, squash and pepper will be available in the near future.
