can be used for many purposes. The applications are infinite
and can always be adapted to your needs. Do not hesitate to
discuss this with the nearest recognized laboratory or with
a recognized advisor. The most common applications are listed
Do you have a diseased plant and want to know quickly what
is causing the problem? Not to worry. With DNA multiscan®
you receive a 100% correct diagnosis within 2 days. Correct
interpretation of these results combined with expert advice
helps you to tackle detected problems efficiently.
"Precision medicine" is no longer exclusive for
man and beast, since plants may also now receive the correct
treatment for optimal yield and harvest quality.
Keeping a crop disease-free often depends on the quality of
irrigation water, drainage water or nutrient solutions. The
presence of pathogenic agents may affect an entire crop, complete
with all possible consequences thereafter. This situation
can be avoided simply by periodically having a DNA multiscan®
analysis conducted on your water. At the same time, you will
know if your fi ltration system or UV disinfection unit is
Preferably, edible foliage plants and fi eld crops are rinsed
or washed after harvest. The amounts of contaminating agents
in wash and rinse water greatly infl uence the shelf life
and quality of readyto- sell crops. By keeping these unwanted
organisms below acceptable levels, industry and regulatory
quality standards are more easily achieved.
Soil and substrate diagnostics
The use of soil-disinfection and crop-protection agents is
becoming more and more legally restrained. Obtaining user
permits will be critical for modern operational management
of producing certain products. DNA multiscan® is
the ideal tool to deliver necessary proof.
DNA multiscan® allows the horticulturist to objectively
prove the need for certain control agents by registering problem
cases during ongoing culture. It is comparable to receiving
a doctor’s prescription to take to the pharmacy.
By regularly collecting and analyzing samples of your soil
or substrate, you receive ideal insights on the health status
of your soil or growing matrix. In this way you can take preventive
action and, consequently, reduce the use of environmentally
detrimental products to a safe minimum.
