  1. Alternaria spp. Seed Test

    Test to detect the presence or absence of the genus Alternaria in Seeds.

    A quantitative test is available on request.

  2. Potato spindle tuber viroid (PSTVd) seed testing package (1500 seeds)

    Potato spindle tuber viroid (PSTVd) effects tomato, pepper and other solanaceous hosts. Symptoms include stunting, severe yellowing and distortion of the leaves. PSTVd is seed transmitted. 1500 seeds are tested for Potato spindle tuber viroid (PSTVd) by real time RT-PCR (TaqMan). However, this TaqMan assay also detects Tomato chlorotic dwarf viroid (TCDVd), Mexican papita viroid (MPVd) and Tomato planta macho viroid (TPMVd).

  3. Identification and confirmation of pospiviroid seed positive

    Pospiviroid positives detected by real time RT-PCR (TaqMan) are tested by RT-PCR and sequencing to try to identify and confirm the pospiviroid.

  4. Additional pospiviroid seed testing (1500 seeds)

    Pospiviroid positives detected by real time RT-PCR (TaqMan) are tested by RT-PCR and sequencing to try to identify and confirm the pospiviroid - this is a supplementary test to our standard Pospiviroid seed testing package.

  5. Pospiviroid seed testing package (1500 seeds)

    Pospiviroid positives detected by real time RT-PCR (TaqMan) are tested by RT-PCR and sequencing to try to identify and confirm the pospiviroid.

  6. Colletotrichum spp. test on Lupin seed (1200 Seeds)

    A quantitative test to detect the presence or absence of the genus Colletotrichum spp. in Lupin Seeds.

  7. Monitoring of Potato Cyst Nematodes (PCN): extraction from soil (400g Soil)

    An ISO accredited test for the extraction and isolation of potato cyst nematodes species (PCN) from known infested fields, as part of management practices. Identification of cyst nematodes to genus, 400g of soil.

  8. Detection of Potato Cyst Nematodes (PCN): extraction from soil (1kg Soil)

    An ISO accredited test for the extraction and identification of potato cyst nematodes(PCN) to genus, 1kg of soil.

  9. Angular leaf spot (Xanthomonas fragariae) - Option 2
    Angular leaf spot is a disease in strawberries caused by the bacterial pathogen Xanthomonas fragariae.
  10. Angular leaf spot (Xanthomonas fragariae) - Option 1

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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.
