  1. Brassica virus screening (3 virus screen)
    Tests to identify 3 viruses found to mostly affect plants in the cabbage (Brassicaceae) family, which includes Turnips and Cauliflower.
  2. Diagnose my Fungal 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.
  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
  6. 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).
  7. Diagnose My Plant
    We understand that every case is different and often you may not know the likely cause of the problem you have found is. For these cases we offer an examination of your sample to assess the most probable cause.
  8. Cyst Nematodes (including Beet Cyst Nematode and Cereal Cyst Nematode): extraction from soil (1kg Soil)

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

  9. Stem Nematode Analysis
    The bulb and stem nematode (Ditylenchus dipsaci) is a particularly destructive plant pathogenic nematode, affecting over 450 plant species.
  10. Identify my Insect or Mite
    We understand that every case is different and with our wealth of experience you have come to the right place to identify your insect you may have found in your imports.
