  1. Standard growing on test for virus in Potato (PVY + 7 viruses)
    This growing on test takes six to eight weeks where tubers are grown on in the glasshouse and subsequently tested for various PVY strains and any specific viruses as requested using ELISA.
  2. Standard growing on test for virus in Potato (PVY + 8 viruses)
    This growing on test takes six to eight weeks where tubers are grown on in the glasshouse and subsequently tested for various PVY strains and any specific viruses as requested using ELISA.
  3. Angular leaf spot (Xanthomonas fragariae) - Option 2
    Angular leaf spot is a disease in strawberries caused by the bacterial pathogen Xanthomonas fragariae.
  4. Angular leaf spot (Xanthomonas fragariae) - Option 1

    A latent test for a bacterial disease affecting strawberries caused by Xanthomonas fragariae.

  5. Barley yellow dwarf virus and Soil borne cereal mosaic virus

    This testing for cereal crops covers both Barley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV) and Soil-borne cereal mosaic virus.

  6. Cereals: Barley mild mosaic virus and Barley yellow mosaic virus
    Barley yellow mosaic virus and Barley mild mosaic virus are pathogenic viruses which cause yellow mosaic disease of winter barley.
  7. Crown Gall Disease (Tumor-Inducing Plasmid) Testing
    A test for Rhizobium radiobacter (formerly known as Agrobacterium tumefaciens), which is responsible for crown gall disease in plants. The bacterium enters the plant through wounds in roots or stems and stimulates disorganised tissue growth, producing swollen galls.
  8. Pospiviroid screen
    A PCR screen to identify the presence of a number of popsiviroids in symptomatic plants/leaves including Potato spindle tuber viroid, Tomato chlorotic dwarf viroid, and Columnea latent viroid.
  9. Soft Rotting Bacteria (average tuber inoculum load)
    This test provides a total count of soft rotting bacteria in potato tubers.
  10. Spraing test for symptomatic tubers (Tobacco rattle virus & 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)

  11. Strawberries: Virus Screening

    Screening for 8 common soft fruit viruses.

  12. Tomato virus diagnosis screening
    Screen for a range of tomato viruses on symptomatic plant material via ELISA.
