Tospovirus Group Test

This test reacts with a variety of viruses in the Orthotospovirus genus. The list below represents tospoviruses that have been experimentally detected with our Tospovirus Group PCR and confirmed by sequencing.


  • Alstroemeria necrotic streak virus (ANSV)
  • Capsicum chlorosis virus (CaCV)
  • Chrysanthemum stem necrosis virus (CSNV)
  • Groundnut ringspot virus (GRSV)
  • Impatiens necrotic spot virus (INSV)
  • Iris yellow spot virus (IYSV)
  • Melon severe mosaic virus (MeSMV)
  • Melon yellow spot virus (MYSV)
  • Soybean vein necrosis virus (SVNV)
  • Tomato chlorotic spot virus (TCSV)
  • Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV)
  • Watermelon silver mottle virus (WSMoV)

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