Tomato brown rugose fruit virus (ToBRFV) is a Tobamovirus that was first observed infecting tomatoes in Israel in 2014. Since then, ToBRFV has also been detected in Europe, Asia and the Americas. It causes symptoms typical of Tobamoviruses that include mosaic and chlorosis on the leaves and discoloration and deformation of the fruit. These symptoms decrease yield and render fruit unmarketable. Moreover, ToBRFV can overcome the Tm-22 gene in tomato that confers resistance to the Tobamoviruses Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) and Tomato mosaic virus (ToMV). This virus is also known to cause significant losses in pepper. The rapid international spread of ToBRFV combined with its ability to break resistance genes is causing alarm within the seed production industry and tomato growers worldwide.
There are multiple diagnostic products and testing services available from Agdia for detection and identification of ToBRFV. Agdia's ToBRFV ELISA reliably detects ToBRFV with a high level of specificity and represents a logical and affordable high-throughput screening step in seed health testing programs. AmplifyRP® XRT for ToBRFV is a rapid, RNA-based, isothermal molecular method which can be be deployed to the field or used in a laboratory setting. Crude extracts of samples which test positive in the ELISA format can be directly tested with the AmplifyRP® assay for confirmation of results.
