Eurofins BioDiagnostics has the capability to perform virus testing, which detects seed-borne viral pathogens. Virus infection can result in reduced yield, quality of the crop, and significant economic loss due to the need for control measures. Our tests provide you tools to make informed decisions regarding protection against infection.

Protocols in our lab are specifically developed for each pathogen and crop, and we use the following detection methods:

  • ELISA (Enzyme-Linked ImmunoSorbent Assay)
  • Biological Assays
  • Grow-out
  • Nucleic acid-based testing (PCR)

We currently offer testing for over 40 specific viruses on a variety of different types of crops, with expansion into more virus testing in the future.

We test for the following pathogens:
