PLANT PRINT Diagnòstics S.L. is a Spanish company specialized in kits for accurate and fast diagnostic and detection of plant pathogens. Our kits are designed for analyzing large numbers of samples (plant origin or arthropods) in a simple, sensitive, specific and robust way.
Our efforts are focused on aggressive and quarantine pathogens that could cause economically important damages in strategic crops, such as citrus, fruit trees and potato.
The methods and the reagents used in our kits have been patented by our company or by research institutions. We internationally distribute validated products of high quality trough co-operative agreements with the Instituto Valenciano de Investigaciones Agrarias-IVIA, Valencia, Spain and with other institutions and companies, after reliable controls.
PLANT PRINT Diagnòstics couples reference products (recommended in international protocols, cited in scientific papers or by academic and industrial leading scientists) with great quality and prices.
The enterprise is the pioneer company that designed and commercialized complete kits using direct methods of sample preparation based on registered and patented protocols and reagents. The company has been internationally distributing since 1992 “Tissue print-ELISA/Immunoprinting-ELISA®” for Citrus tristeza virus (CTV) detection based on the reference 3DF1 and 3CA5 specific monoclonal antibodies.
We are the first company that commercialized the sensitive “Enrichment ELISA®” method based on polyclonal and specific monoclonal antibodies for accurate bacterial detection since 1994.
PLANT PRINT also produces accurate MagicDAS-ELISA kits for viral detection. The system combines the use of polyclonal antibodies for coating with highly specific monoclonal antibodies (or cocktails of specific antibodies) linked with alkaline phosphatase by an innovative and efficient method. Our ELISA kits have very low background and are highly sensitive and specific.
We are the producers and exclusive distributors of the specific monoclonal antibody 5B-IVIA/AMR for detection of any Plum pox virus (PPV) strain or type. We are the owners of the patent of the specific sequence of the epitope recognized by this reference monoclonal antibody.
PLANT PRINT is the only company that commercializes real-time PCR or RT-PCR kits for molecular detection of important plant pathogens in a simple and direct way, without DNA or RNA purification. We supply complete kits for detection of bacteria, viruses and viroids. Some of our novelties refers to the detection of ‘Ca. Liberibacter’ spp.® causing citrus HLB disease, ‘Ca. Liberibacter solanacearum’®, Citrus exocortis viroid (CEVd)®, Hop stunt viroid (HSVd)®, Potato spindle tuber viroid (PSTVd)® and Peach latent mosaic viroid (PLMVd)®, among others.
Additionally, the company offers international diagnostic services based on pre-printed samples immobilized on membranes and consultancy related to citrus and fruit trees nurseries and seed potato production. Our company offers as well consultancy or analyses for management of diseases in orchards and plantations.
PLANT PRINT Diagnòstics offers a special discount price when ordering several units and the company is sensitive to special requirements in the format of the available kits as well as to bulk purchasing. Contact us, we will work quickly to offer our best quotation based on your interests.
By all these means, we would like to contribute to a substantial improvement in detection and diagnostic methods for plant pathogens. The main objective of our kits is to guarantee the production of pathogen-free nursery plants and/or to reach a profitable yield in conventional fields.
Working together we will get you the best deal possible and the most accurate tools to solve your specific diagnostic/detection goals. Our policy and slogan is “Pathogen detection in early stages means to diagnose the future”.
