The Pocket Diagnostic® Potato virus Y (PVY) lateral flow rapid test is designed for the quick, in-field detection of potato virus Y in a wide range of plant material, including woody tissues, leaves and roots.

Our PVY rapid test kit will detect both potato virus YO (common strain) and potato virus YN (necrotic strain).

The test utilises lateral flow technology to easily and reliably detect PVY in a matter of minutes: the speed of results, therefore, allows for faster decision making in the event of a positive test result. This is why government inspectors, advisers, growers and plant disease experts all over the world are using the Pocket Diagnostic® Potato virus Y rapid test during their routine plant disease management activities.

The benefits of using the Pocket Diagnostic® Potato virus Y rapid test include:

  • Rapid results in 10 minutes

How to Use

The test involves simply gathering a sample of living material from the tree/plant ie leaf, phloem tissue, stem or root;

  • Add to the buffer solution provided (which also includes several ball bearings to macerate the tissue)
  • Shake vigorously for approximately a couple of minutes
  • Allow the solution to settle and add 2 drops of the liquid onto your test strip.
  • Only one test per tree/plant will be conclusive if the correct testing procedure is followed.

In addition to Potato virus Y (PVY), LFT tests are also available for Phytophthora, Erwinia amylovora (Fireblight) & Ralstonia solanacearum (Bacterial Wilt Disease).
