CRD™ Botrytis

Cubed Lab’s first diagnostic is CRD™ Botrytis, a rapid point-of-need test to detect the presence of botrytis, also known as gray mold or bunch rot.

The botrytis fungus infects over 230 plant species, evident on the surface as gray fluffy mycelium. Worldwide, it is estimated it causes losses of US$10-100bn (Jin & Wu, 2015) and can counteract a broad range of plant defense chemicals. CRD™ Botrytis enables farmers to proactively address infections at the earliest possible stage and treat accordingly. It can detect botrytis before it appears and while you can still treat it.

WHY RAPID DIAGNOSTICS MATTER

  • Simple test operation eliminates need for specialized training and education
  • No additional equipment and materials required, everything needed to test in 1 box
  • Find and eliminate issues before they become cost sinks
  • Rapid test results can remove the need for storage costs while you are waiting for lab results

Proactive QA / QC

  • Results in minutes and hours instead of days
  • Real-time results can be used to immediately correct or investigate an issue
  • Can actively investigate identify problem areas and sources of infections
  • Proactive problem solving reduces the risk of crop and yield loss
  • Rapid results and feedback allow for continuous quality improvement
  • Prevention is key in stopping infections

Competitive advantage
