Our Crop Protection Services

The tailor-made services of IDENTXX cover the areas of diagnostics of phytopathogens in field crops, special crops as well as ornamentals, and the detection of fungicide resistance by means of novel, PCR-based identification systems. Our focus is on fungal and bacterial pathogens. Our service will be individually adapted to the range of applications required. However, IDENTXX gladly develops new solutions to new problems arising. Please don´t hesitate to discuss with us!

Diagnostics of phytopathogens in seeds, plants and soil including possible applications:


  • Identification of contaminated lots
  • Supply of defined contaminated seeds for field studies
  • Support of seed certification


  • Early detection of latent diseases
  • Rapid tests for the efficacy of seed treatments
  • Temporally improved grow-out-tests
  • Development of molecular markers as alternative for markers commonly used in crop improvement


  • Assessments of agricultural experimental fields
  • Support in decision making for crop rotations
  • Inclusion of pathogen diagnostics in field campaigns

Development of identification systems for novel and mutated pathogens

Support in monitoring

Greenhouse testing to complement laboratory studies, monitoring and field campaigns

For following phytopathogenes rapid detections are available. Furthermore, we gladly develop new identification systems not listed.
