Candidatus Liberibacter Detection Kits

Citrus Huanglongbing (HLB), previously known as citrus greening, constitutes the most economically devastating disease of citrus worldwide, being present in around 40 countries. HLB causes severe symptoms, depending on the age and the number of infections per plant. The disease is caused by the fastidious gram-negative α-proteobacteria Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus (Las), Ca. L. africanus, and Ca. L. americanus as well as some phytoplasmas. The bacterium propagates within the phloem of citrus plants producing die-back, yellow shoots, blotchy mottles on leaves, and off-tasting and malformed fruit. The ‘Ca. Liberibacter’ bacterium is transmitted by the psyllids Trioza erytreae in Africa and Diaphorina citri in Asia and the Americas. A variety of diagnostic methods have been developed to supplement or confirm field-based diagnosis of HLB however, end-point PCR-based and real-time quantitative methods are currently the most widely used methods in plant and insect tissues to detect and identify HLB- Liberibacters.

  • Ready to use format, including Master Mix for the target and PCR control to monitor for PCR inhibition and validate the quality
  • Specific Primer mix for the pathogen/virus/viroid of interest
  • Positive control and a negative control to confirm the integrity of the kit reagents
  • Loading dye and a DNA ladder to facilitate qualitative analysis of the results on an agarose gel
Candidatus Liberibacter End-Point PCR/RT-PCR Primer Set and Controls, 100 reactions
  • Specific Primer mix and Positive Control for the pathogen/virus/viroid of interest
  • Nuclease-free water
  • Can be used together with Norgen’s PCR/RT-PCR Master Mix (#28007/#28113)or customer supplied master mix

For research use only and NOT intended for in vitro diagnostics.

Storage Conditions and Product Stability
All kit components should be stored at -20°C upon arrival. Repeated thawing and freezing (> 2 x) of the Master Mix, Control Master Mix and Positive Control should be avoided, as this may affect the performance of the assay. If the reagents are to be used only intermittently, they should be frozen in aliquots. All reagents can be stored for 1 year at -20°C without showing any reduction in performance.
