New Orchid ImmunoStrip With Expanded Potexvirus Detection

Agdia has introduced an improved orchid pathogen test that detects and identifies a newly discovered Asian isolate of the potexvirus Cymbidium mosaic virus (CymMV). Designed to rapidly screen all types of orchids for stains of both CymMV and Odontoglossum ringspot virus (ORSV), the Orchid Virus ImmunoStrip allows fast, user-friendly screening of symptomatic, as well as non-symptomatic plants.

The Orchid Virus ImmunoStrip is ideal for screening cultivated orchids for these prevalent and problematic pathogens prior to purchase. The test is easy to perform, requires no special test equipment or facilites and provides results in as little as five minutes.
