Agdia, Inc. Offers the First Rapid Test for the Detection of Hosta virus X

April 16, 2008


Plants infected with HVX do not always exhibit symptoms. When symptoms are present they can vary from variety to variety and also resemble other problems. This behavior makes it difficult to recognize infected plants.  

Designed to deliver on-the-spot results, the Agdia HVX ImmunoStrip® can be used by anyone. It takes only minutes to determine if plants are infected with Hosta virus X. Use the HVX ImmunoStrip® to test before purchasing plants or before accepting a shipment. Ensure plants are clean before propagating and monitor plants throughout the season. The test works with leaf or root material.  

  • Strong, clean results make the test simple to interpret.
  • Ease of use – Using the test requires no cumbersome technique or equipment.
  • Portable – Strips can travel with the user wherever they may be needed. One-year guaranteed shelf life.
