Pathogen Detection – Genie Lab
Plant pathogens can affect all plant tissues and wipe out entire operations. Many infections can go undetected in asymptomatic plants only to decimate crops in the later stages of growth, such as hop latent viroid (HLVd). The quickest and most sensitive method to test for pathogens is a genetic analysis known as polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Our pathogen detection service screens samples with PCR for unique genetic markers of fungal, bacterial, and viral cannabis pathogens to providing clean plants and peace of mind.
Currently, our lab provides accurate, high throughput pathogen testing on plant tissue for the agricultural and horticultural industries. We are expanding to other small fruits in the near future.
We perform an 11-virus panel, a foliar/bud-rot panel, a foliar/stem panel, a root-rot panel, a Fusarium panel, a Pythium panel, a Phytophthora panel, and a biocontrol agent panel test on plant tissue to find out what is affecting your plants.
Current turnaround time for testing samples is NEXT DAY in most cases – please contact us for an estimate
