Pectobacterium Group Test

This test reacts with a variety of bacteria assigned to the genus Pectobacterium. The list below represents species that have been experimentally detected with our Pectobacterium Group PCR and confirmed by sequencing.


  • Pectobacterium atrosepticum
  • Pectobacterium carotovorum
  • Pectobacterium parmentieri (formerly P. wasabiae)

The list below represents bacterial species that have not been experimentally detected, but based on in silico analysis, will likely be detected with our Pectobacterium Group PCR. If you have a sample of one of these pathogens, please contact  


  • Pectobacterium aroidearum
  • Pectobacterium odiferum
  • Pectobacterium parvum
  • Pectobacterium polaris
  • Pectobacterium versatile (formerly P. maceratum)

Pathogens are added to these lists as they are shown to be detected by in vitro or in silico analysis. Check here regularly for updates.
