Nematode Testing Services

Columbia and Northern Root-knots, Stubby Root, Dagger and Root Lesion nematodes, to name a few, can make considerable negative impacts on economically important crops. The nematode assay lab in AGNEMA™ focuses on the identification of the frugally vital plant-parasitic nematodes in soil, water and plant materials. Through nematode assay, plant-pathogenic nematodes are identified and counted. Moreover, a nematode species is the smallest group of populations that can be distinguished by a unique set of morphological or genetic traits. AGNEMA™ uses a semi-automated technology to extract nematodes from the soil samples. The intention of this method is to make extractions unified; that means having a hi-efficient nematode recovery during the repetition of extractions.
