Description: For Phytophthora spp. that are quarantine or regulated organisms, highly specific and sensitive diagnostic tools are recommended for surveys and monitoring. Furthermore, these diagnostic techniques should give results within a short time and should be not be too expensive. The techniques currently used for routine diagnosis of Phytophthora spp. in plant tissue are mainly molecular techniques (conventional and real-time PCR) and direct isolation. They require that samples must be brought to a diagnostic lab with specific equipment. This takes time and means financial losses for the commercial nursery industry because they have to stop plant sales until results are available. Furthermore, with PCR, only a single Phytophthora sp. can be detected per run. Therefore, techniques that can be used directly in the field and that can detect multiple Phytophthora spp. at a time would be preferred.
