The aim of this study was to determine a standardised description of the potency of a PCR setup with respect to detection limits. The main terms used are the theoretical detection limit (Ltheor) and the practical detection limit (Lprac). These detection limits were determined for 2 current PCR setups for the detection of genetically modified soyabeans and maize.
