  1. Foliar nematodes from plant material

    Many plant species are susceptible to infection by foliar parasitic nematodes, leaf and bulb nematodes (Aphelenchoides spp.) and stem nematode (Ditylenchus dipsaci).

  2. Strawberry red core (Phytophthora fragariae) in plants
    This test for Strawberry Red Core (Phytophthora fragariae) on non-symptomatic plants allows for the detection of low levels of the disease in propogation material.
  3. Strawberries: Virus Screening

    Screening for 8 common soft fruit viruses.

  4. Angular leaf spot (Xanthomonas fragariae) - Option 1

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

  5. Angular leaf spot (Xanthomonas fragariae) - Option 2
    Angular leaf spot is a disease in strawberries caused by the bacterial pathogen Xanthomonas fragariae.
  6. Strawberry tarsonemid mite (Phytonemus pallidus subsp. fragariae)
    Rapid identification of strawberry Tarsonemid Mites (Phytonemus pallidus fragariae) within your plant samples.
  7. Diagnose My Crop Problem
    We understand that every case is different and often you may not know the likely cause of the problem. For these cases we offer an examination of your sample by our crop health experts to assess the most probable cause.
  8. 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).
  9. 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.
