The J.R. Simplot’s Innate™ Screening Test Kit is designed to identify J.R. Simplot’s Innate™ potatoes with a fast and easy-to-use colorimetric test. Potatoes are cut open and the inside surface flesh is scraped to form a pulp. A small amount of the pulp is then mixed with Indicator Solution and incubated for ten minutes. In the presence of the J.R. Simplot Innate™ potato, the indicator solution will not significantly change in color. However, in the presence of wild-type potato, the Indicator Solution will turn an amber color ranging from light tan to dark brown. The whole procedure should take less than 30 minutes from start to finish. This test is designed to be a screening test only. Definitive potato J.R. Simplot Innate™ status needs be determined by an appropriate genetic testing laboratory.
If a positive result, or ambiguous result, is identified that same tuber would need to be sent for follow-up genetic testing.
