Identification and confirmation of pospiviroid seed positive
  • Method Used
    Real-Time PCR
  • Standard Turnaround Time
    12-20 working days

Pospiviroid positives detected by real time RT-PCR (TaqMan) are tested by RT-PCR and sequencing to try to identify and confirm the pospiviroid. Identification and confirmation is not always possible due to the low level of viroid detected in seeds and the fact that RT-PCR is less sensitive that real time RT-PCR.

Please also note that the same sample of seeds from the Pospiviroid seed testing package can be used, so no requirement for any further samples to be sent to us.

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).
