  1. Spraing test for Soil (tobacco rattle virus and potato mop top virus)

    Tests for the 2 viruses responsible for spraing, the nematode transmitted Tobacco rattle virus (TRV) and the Powdery scab transmitted Potato mop top virus (PMTV)

  2. Pea bacterial blight - Pseudomonas syringae pv. pisi - Pea seed
    Test for Pseudomonas syringae pv. pisi, more commonly known as pea bacterial blight. Infection causes water-soaked spots which may coalesce into larger lesions.
  3. DNA sequencing of 16S rDNA or housekeeping genes
    DNA sequencing of 16S rDNA or housekeeping genes can be performed to identify bacterial isolates to a species or pathovar level. Testing can be performed on fresh isolates sent in to our labs or as an additional service to identify bacteria isolated from a sample sent in for testing.
  4. Fatty Acid Profiling
    Fatty Acid Profiling (FAP) is used to identify bacterial isolates and is accredited to UKAS ISO17025 standards. The profiles generated are compared against commercially available FAP libraries as well as our own in-house libraries generated using isolates from the National Collection of Plant Pathogenic Bacteria (NCPPB).
  5. Soft Rotting Bacteria (average tuber inoculum load)
    This test provides a total count of soft rotting bacteria in potato tubers.
  6. Inorganic Arsenic (iAs)
    Fera food testing experts use leading detection techniques to accurately identify levels of potentially toxic arsenic within food samples. From this valuable insight you can satisfy regulators on the safety of your foodstuffs.
  7. Metals Analysis - 5 Day Fast Turnaround

    Fera food testing experts perform extensive mineral and trace element testing of food samples, accredited to ISO17025, to provide insights into the quality and safety of your foodstuffs.

  8. Metals Analysis (New Lower Price & Faster Turnaround)
    Fera food testing experts perform extensive mineral and trace element testing of food samples, accredited to ISO17025, to provide insights into the quality and safety of your foodstuffs.
  9. Tomato mosaic virus by ELISA - Seeds
    Tomato mosaic virus (TMV), is an infection that can cause yellowing and stunting of tomato plants, resulting in reduced yield and may cause uneven ripening of fruit.
  10. Blackcurrant reversion virus
    A test for blackcurrant reversion disease which is caused by a virus transmitted by the mite Cecidophyopsis ribis (blackcurrant gall mite or big bud mite).
  11. Cyst Nematodes (including PCN and BCN): extraction from soil

    An ISO accredited test for the extraction and identification of potato cyst nematode (PCN) species Globodera rostochiensis and Globodera pallida from soil.

  12. Virus-vector nematodes from soil: Stubby-Root nematodes

    A test for stubby-root nematodes such as Trichodorus or Paratrichodorus minor. Plants infected show short stunted roots and a general overall reduction in root development. These nematodes can also transmit damaging plant viruses.
