ImmunoStrip® for Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV)

The Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) ImmunoStrip® is used to detect the presence of TMV in many different crops including vegetables, fruits, and ornamentals. ImmunoStrips® are the perfect screening tool for use in the field, greenhouse, and the lab.

The TMV ImmunoStrip® cross-reacts with many other Tobamoviruses. For more technical information, click here.

Tobacco mosaic virus is an extremely stable virus and can easily infect adjacent plants and contaminate surfaces such as benches, pots, tools, etc.

Analytical Sensitivity
Limit of detection: 1:831,060 dilution of infected tissue (pathogen titer unknown)

Isolate Names / Geographic Strain Locations
This assay was designed to detect all strains and isolates of TMV. Two hundred twenty-six distinct samples of TMV have been experimentally proven to be detected including samples of TMV-c.

Cross-reactions
Bell pepper mottle virus (BPeMV) Cucumber green mild mottle virus (CGMMV)
Kyuri green mottle mosaic virus (KGMMV) Odontoglossum ringspot virus (ORSV)
Pepper mild mottle virus (PMMoV) Piper chlorosis virus (PChV)1,2
Streptocarpus flower break virus (SFBV) Sunn-hemp mosaic virus (SHMV)
Tobacco mild green mosaic virus (TMGMV) Tomato brown rugose fruit virus (ToBRFV)
Tomato mosaic virus (ToMV) Tomato mottle mosaic virus (ToMMV)
1Confirmed experimentally at Agdia, Inc.
2Reported to detect Piper chlorosis virus (PChV), a possible novel Tobamovirus.

Despite the broad reactivity of this test, it is recommended that specific viral tests be used when available as they are optimized for test specificity and sensitivity which may exceed the sensitivity and specificity of the TMV assay to other Tobamoviruses. If you have confirmed the detection of a likely cross-reaction Tobamovirus or any Tobamoviruses not on this list, please contact us.
