The Tobamovirus Group PCR primers offer a sensitive diagnostic method to detect members of the Tobamovirus genus of the Virgaviridae family. The primer sequences are based on conserved genome regions and can detect characterized and unassigned members of the Tobamovirus genus.

This test can be used as an aid for identification of viral etiology of unknown plant diseases, test for known viruses when other tests are not available and can be used to confirm results from other test methods. For a full list of confirmed and predicted reactions, click here.

The Tobamovirus Group PCR primer product includes a lyophilized mix of forward and reverse primers, PCR quality water and detailed instructions.

1The list above represents viruses that have been shown to be detected by this group PCR test. It also represents viruses that may be detected based on in silico analysis. If you have confirmed detection of a predicted virus detection or a virus not on this list, please contact us. We would like to work with you to further validate detection capabilities.
2Predicted detection by in silico analysis only
3Described by ICTV as a related, unclassified Tobamovirus
4Confirmed to detect Chili pepper mild mottle virus (CPMMoV), a possible novel Tobamovirus.
