Phytopathology

Phytopathology

Years of continuous and targeted investigations of a wide variety of plant-damaging microorganisms in our laboratory make us experts for all diagnostic questions relating to your crops. Find out more about diagnostics and identification of the different species.

Outdoor cultivation

In addition to large crops such as wheat, corn or rapeseed, we also offer evidence of special crops such as e.g. B. cress on.
Anything is possible, from small symptomatic spots to bulk samples of leaf or stem material. Use our experience for an optimized production.

greenhouse cultivation

The greenhouse cultivation of ornamental plants or vegetables, medicinal and aromatic herbs is a particular challenge, also with regard to the management of microorganisms.

Secure your production stages with the specific diagnostics of IDENTXX.

Our processing time is usually 10 working days. If you are in a hurry, we can shorten the analysis times to 1 day after sample receipt.

Field of use

Molecular-biological pathogen diagnostics recognizes pathogens long before symptoms of a disease appear on the crop. Use this advantage in the following applications:

Monitoring

By sending in and examining leaf samples, you will receive valuable insights into the success of your treatment or your quality management during the season. Early identification of infection events is particularly important for successful production in greenhouse cultivation
In the case of larger field projects, additional information such as preculture, treatment times or infestation assessment can be recorded and passed on to you with the help of documents accompanying the samples.

Active substance testing

Supplement your drug test in the field or greenhouse with accompanying molecular biological tests and recognize the effect of your substances even before you assess them.

Seed testing

Use our range of tests, for example as a quick pre-screening for your seed batches, before you carry out further time-consuming and costly quality assurance measures such as grow-out tests.

Variety testing

Mixed infections with various pathogens can of course occur in field trials. The resulting damage patterns can be ambiguous and thus have a negative impact on the assessment. With specific evidence, you quickly create more security in your variety assessment

Sampling process

Basically, we offer three analysis tools for answering your phytopathological questions. We determine which method is the right one for your purposes in a non-binding consultation audition ch.

Preparation of an analysis report

Standard processing time is 10 working days from sample receipt.
Express processing (1 - 2 working days) possible on request.

For quantitative PCR (qPCR) we used fluorescence-labeled probes, which are degraded during a successful PCR reaction. The released fluorophores can then be detected in real time. With the help of fluorescence-labeled probes, we simultaneously detect and quantify up to 4 pathogens

Based on a DNA sequence comparison, we determine the species of the submitted sample from pure cultures. Sanger sequencing is one of the key technologies in molecular biology. This method makes it possible to determine the base sequence of a PCR product and then compare it with databases.

Our strength is individual analysis

We offer tailor-made solutions for your phytopathological questions.
In order to make optimal use of our expertise for you, we offer you a non-binding preliminary discussion to clarify the following questions.

Use our many years of expertise in analysis and processing strategies to answer your questions.
