Detection kit for plant diseases.

Fast. Portable. Simple.

About Pathogen

Bringing science to people.

PathoGen is a technology that allows the detection of simultaneous infections in an easy and fast way. This technology is being developed first on vineyard infections (PathoGen Vid). Thanks to the simplicity of its design, it can be used directly on the field, without the need of laboratory equipments, giving fast results, necessary to avoid further infections. If the sample contains the specific pathogen, a positive signal is displayed by a change on the color of the reaction.

The Kit

A kit similar to a pregnancy test for plant diseases detection.

Fast

Results available in two hours, speeding response times of vineyard to potential harmful infections.

Portable

Usable directly on the field.

Simple

Eliminates the need for specialized equipment and eases the process so the same vineyard staff can perform the test.

Specific and Sensible

Specific for each microorganism, can detect with low infectious load.

Multiple Detections in One

Simultaneously detects multiple vine pathogens with a single plant sample.

Reliable

Avoids inaccuracy by eliminating most of the user interaction with the samples.

Other Services

Thanks to the help provided by others we are where we stand, so we also want to give a hand and help you achieve your goals.

Lab Diagnosis

Besides our kit, we offer molecular detection of Agrobacterium spp for plant samples in our lab. In addition if you need detection for other pathogens, we gladly can develop it.

Project Development

Doing science is not an easy job, specially for startups.
We offer consultancy services with project development, budget planning, experimental design, research services and funds application.
