About Pocket Diagnostic® Plant disease rapid tests

Pocket Diagnostic® in-field plant pathogen lateral flow rapid tests were initially developed for the UK Government plant health inspectors testing for tomato and potato diseases. The success of the plant disease tests led to the product being commercialised to a wider audience stretching across the world.

Since their launch, the high-quality and reliability of these rapid tests has led to their use in routine disease monitoring programmes and in response to disease outbreaks. Pocket Diagnostic® rapid tests are recognised worldwide as industry-leading plant disease detection kits.

Nucleic acid detection

In addition to our plant health tests, we also provide a platform for the online purchase of PCRD Nucleic Acid Lateral Flow Immunoassays (NALFIA). PCRD are qualitative rapid tests used as an alternative to DNA agarose gel electrophoresis and designed to detect amplicons labelled with DIG/Biotin and/or FITC (or FAM)/Biotin.
