 Eurofins BioDiagnostics performs bacteriology testing for the purpose of detecting seed-borne bacterial pathogens and follows specific protocols for each pathogen and crop. We follow these steps for the majority of our bacteria tests:

  • Seed wash
  • Culture plate (selective media)
  • Evaluation
  • Isolation
  • Confirmation: PCR and/or pathogenicity testing
