Pocket Diagnostic®Plant Disease Test Kits

About Pocket Diagnostic

Pocket Diagnostic® is a range of easy to use, rapid lateral flow assay testing kits for on-site detection of damaging plant diseases caused by fungi, bacteria and viruses.

Pocket Diagnostic® in-field plant pathogen diagnostic kits were developed in 1996 by the UK Government (Food & Environment Research Agency, FERA) for use by plant health inspectors testing for potato and tomato diseases. The success of the products led to the formation of spin out company Forsite Diagnostics Ltd to lead the manufacture and commercialise of the kits.

Pocket Diagnostic® was subsequently rolled out to growers, farmers, agronomists, research institutes and private laboratories worldwide to enable them to realise the benefits of this technology. Since their launch, the high quality and reliability of these kits has led to their use in routine disease monitoring programmes and in response to disease outbreaks. Pocket Diagnostic® kits are recognised worldwide as industry leading plant disease detection kits.
In 2012 Abingdon Health Ltd acquired a controlling stake in Forsite Diagnostics Ltd, and since 2014 Forsite Diagnostics has been trading as Abingdon Health. To learn more about Abingdon Health Ltd please visit www.abingdonhealth.com.
