Potato Spindle Tuber Viroid (PSTVd) TaqMan RT-PCR Detection Kits

The Potato Spindle Tuber Viroid (PSTVd) was the first viroid to be identified, and the natural hosts for this viroid are potatoes and tomatoes. Potato spindle tuber disease has been found in the United States, Canada, Russia and South Africa, and it is one of the most destructive diseases of potatoes. PSTVd is a small (359 nucleotide), circular, single-stranded RNA molecule closely related to the Chrysanthemum stunt viroid. The viroid attacks all varieties of potato, is known to spread rapidly and often occurs in combination with virus diseases. Symptoms of PSTVd infection range from mild to severe, with severe infections resulting in colour change in the foliage, smaller leaves, spindle like elongation, and a slower rate of sprouting.

There are 2 kits available for the detection of PSTVd:

Kit Specifications

You have selected: Cat. TM38650

Storage Conditions and Product Stability
All kit components can be stored for 1 year after the date of production without showing any reduction in performance.

All kit components should be stored at -20°C upon arrival. Repeated thawing and freezing (> 2 x) of the 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.
