  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Soft Rotting Bacteria (average tuber inoculum load)
    This test provides a total count of soft rotting bacteria in potato tubers.
  4. 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)

  5. Strawberries: Virus Screening

    Screening for 8 common soft fruit viruses.

  6. Tomato virus diagnosis screening
    Screen for a range of tomato viruses on symptomatic plant material via ELISA.
  7. Stem Nematode Analysis
    The bulb and stem nematode (Ditylenchus dipsaci) is a particularly destructive plant pathogenic nematode, affecting over 450 plant species.
  8. Plant-parasitic nematodes in seed (including stem nematode)
    Test to identify plant-parasitic nematodes in seed (including stem nematode).
  9. Pea seed-borne mosaic virus by ELISA - Seeds
    Pea seed-borne mosaic virus (PSbMV) a seed and aphid transmitted virus that causes yield losses and seed defects in a range of bean and pea crops.
  10. Pantoea stewartii subsp. stewartii - maize seeds
    Test for bacterial wilt caused by the bacterium Pantoea stewartii in Maize seeds.
  11. Lettuce mosaic virus by ELISA - seeds
    Lettuce mosaic virus (LMV) is a seed transmissible virus causing defects in lettuce heading, leaf distortions and variation in leaf colour.
  12. Potato spindle tuber viroid by TaqMan® - Seeds

    The common symptoms of Potato spindle tuber viroid (PSTVd) can include stunted growth and changes in the foliage colour in extensively affected crops.
