Agdia launches a 30 Minutes DNA Test for the detection of the dangerous Xylella fastidiosa bacteria
Severe Xylella fastidiosa infections can decimate entire crops and cause enormous financial losses. The bacteria can also be a major threat for forest trees.
The Xylella fastidiosa AmplifyRP XRT+ test developed by Agdia Inc. can help to fight this disease by providing a rapid detection in less than 30 minutes when it can take some days with other techniques. It provides the same level of sensitivity and specificity as PCR laboratory methods and does not require any special technical skills, providing shorter diagnosis timeframes.
