  1. Potato brown rot & ring rot (Official EU Protocol) - Ralstonia solanacearum & Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. sepedonicus
    This test is to detect the presence of Ring Rot and Brown Rot in potato tubers.
  2. 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).
  3. 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.
  4. Bacterial canker - Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. michiganensis - Seed
    Detection of the pathogenic bacteria Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. michiganensis in tomato seeds.
  5. Pantoea stewartii subsp. stewartii - maize seeds
    Test for bacterial wilt caused by the bacterium Pantoea stewartii in Maize seeds.
  6. Soft Rotting Bacteria (average tuber inoculum load)
    This test provides a total count of soft rotting bacteria in potato tubers.
  7. Tomato root mat disease (Root-inducing plasmid) testing
    A test for Tomato Root Mat Disease caused by Rhizobium rhizogenes, a gram-negative soil bacterium that contains root-inducing (Ri) plasmids which can lead to over-abundant growth of roots in tomatoes and cucumbers.
  8. Angular leaf spot (Xanthomonas fragariae) - Option 2
    Angular leaf spot is a disease in strawberries caused by the bacterial pathogen Xanthomonas fragariae.
  9. Bean blight seed test - Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. phaseoli
    Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. phaseoli, more commonly known as Bean Blight. It produces similar symptoms on leaves, pods, stems and seeds.
  10. 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.
  11. Tuber blemish diseases: visual assessment (% coverage)
    Our experts undertake a detailed visual assessment of your samples to report a percentage coverage of various tuber blemish diseases including: silver scurf, black scurf, skin spot, scab and black dot
  12. Potato wash water test - Total count of soft rotting bacteria (Pectobacterium and Dickeya spp.)
    An overall count of soft rotting bacteria in potato wash water.
