ISHS Acta Horticulturae 901: XII International Symposium on Virus Diseases of Ornamental Plants

THE ROLE OF RAPID DIAGNOSTIC TESTS IN ORNAMENTAL VIRUS DETECTION

Author:   M.G. Tiffany
Keywords:   ELISA assay, ImmunoStrip, Pocket Diagnostic Test, Polymerase Chain Reaction
Abstract:
There are many diagnostic tests available for the detection of viral pathogens in ornamental crops. With the introduction of rapid sensitive diagnostic tests, the ornamental industry now has tools that provide quick, reliable results in a short period of time, usually less than 30 minutes. These tests can be used in the laboratory, greenhouse, and field situations e.g. by federal and state inspectors, greenhouse growers and propagators, and diagnostic labs. The rapid diagnostic tests offer those who work with ornamental plants a quick and reliable means to detect viral pathogens.
