A method of manufacturing a reference material for determining incorporation of a genetically modified (GM) plant into a sample or analyzing a mixing ratio from a tissue-cultured cell line that is obtained by incubating tissues of either a GM plant or a non-GM plant, and a method of determining incorporation of a GM plant into a sample and analyzing a mixing ratio using the reference material are provided. The reference material for determining the incorporation of a genetically modified (GM) plant a sample or analyzing a mixing ratio using the tissue-cultured cell lines that are obtained by incubating tissues of the GM plant and the non-GM plant can be useful in producing a countless number of populations having the same genetic traits via the tissue culture. Thus, when a culture capacity of the reference material is increased to a large volume, it is possible to obtain a large volume of the reference material having uniform qualities with no quality variation between batches. Unlike the conventional reference materials manufactured using grain powder, a reference material with 100% purity can be obtained as either a GM or non-GM reference material by verifying the purity of the tissue-cultured cell line. Accordingly, it is possible to provide the uniform and stable supply of a reference material having uniform compositions.

Many desirable engineering properties such as excellent hardness, corrosion, and abrasion resistance can be obtained by anodizing aluminum metals in acid electrolytes. In addition, due to its high porosity, the porous oxide films formed on the metals serve as a good adhesion base for electroplating, painting, and semi-permanent decorative coloration. Porous AAO film grown on aluminum is composed of a thin barrier oxide layer in conformal contact with aluminum, and an overlying, relatively thick, porous oxide film containing mutually parallel nanopores extending from the barrier oxide layer to the film surface. Each cylindrical nanopore and its surrounding oxide region constitute a hexagonal cell aligned normal to the metal surface. Under specific electrochemical conditions, the oxide cells self-organize into hexagonal close-packed arrangement, forming a honeycomb-like structure.
