And if molecular biology steps directly into the field?

Visual inspection remains routine practice to determine the presence or absence of some plant diseases in the field. This first diagnostic is generally supplemented by ELISA tests done directly on the suspicious samples or ship to laboratories for more reliable and sensitive analysis.

Molecular analysis is the most appropriate method to detect plant diseases in an early and reliable way, but this approach, until now, has been limited to expert laboratories due to the fact that it doesn’t exist on the market appropriate equipment to realize DNA analysis in the field.
