Molecular Testing & Plant Virus Indexing


Our Expertise

Molecular testing section of Jain R&D (Testing, Calibration, Research & Development Laboratory) offers expertise in molecular diagnostic tests based on Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR), and Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA). Our laboratory has all the necessary equipments procured from world leading manufacturers.

Jains Virus testing laboratory is the only lab in the country to have an NABL accreditation (Certificate T-1493).

The banana leaf samples / suckers / explants are rigorously screened for the presence / absence of major viruses affecting banana such as Cucumber Mosaic Virus (CMV) & Banana Bract Mosaic Virus (BBrMV) using ELISA and Banana Streak Virus (BSV) & Banana Bunchy Top Virus (BBTV) using PCR.

Jains virus testing laboratorys experienced scientists are continuously involved in the development of innovative technologies and whenever any new product or parameter is required to be analyzed, it evaluates and modifies the same and if required, new test methods are developed for analysis.
