*Cry1Ab is the protein produced in events MON810, E176 and Bt11, and it is impossible to differentiate among this events using a protein-based test. 
          E176 produces very low levels of the protein and therefore a sample was considered positive if it contained event MON810 and/or event Bt11.
**NR indicates No Result was reported by the participant.
***Samples were analyzed using a protein-based test(s), but the fortification level was below the Limit of Detection for this particular test.
