Plant Health Lab
Please note: the Health Lab is not yet accepting samples but is anticipating submission forms will be available in late summer 2019
The Perennia Plant Health Lab is a plant diagnostic laboratory specializing in virus detection in grapes by RT-PCR (RNA viruses) and PCR (DNA viruses). Perennia is comprised of a multidisciplinary team of specialists that can assist clients in diagnosing in-field issues. The Plant Health Lab is a complement to the rest of the team in providing definitive, reliable and consistent results to our clients on grape viruses.
Our team will conduct a systematic sampling procedure in a requested field following a specific protocol that is designed to provide the highest level of confidence in virus detection.
Commonly Tested Viral Diseases of Grapes:
• Grapevine Red Blotch Virus (GRBV)
• Grapevine Leafroll-Associated Virus-1 and 3 (GLRaV-1 and GLRaV-3)
At this time the lab will only be providing virus testing in grapes with the intent to extend into other crops with time.
