Laboratory Testing

The CAV has an Accredia accredited laboratory (accreditation certificate and list of tests) and is officially recognized by the Regional Phytosanitary Service of Emilia-Romagna on behalf of MIPAAF (determines n° 8750 of 1998, n°1329 of 2001 and n°18795 of 2018) to carry out phytopathological analyses on its own material in conservation and also on behalf of third parties, using optical microscopy techniques, microbiological techniques (isolation and identification), serological (direct and indirect ELISA, IFAS), molecular (PCR, RT-PCR, Real Time PCR, Digital droplet PCR) and biological (indexing) techniques.

MIPAAF recognizes the possibility for CAV to:

  • Carry out phytosanitary analyses on fruit plants, vegetables, ornamental plants and related propagation materials for the research of phytoplasmas, viruses, viroids, bacteria, fungi, nematodes and mites/insects;
  • Carry out varietal correspondence analyses on fruit and vegetable plants (DNA fingerprinting);
  • Carry out health tests for the approval of grapevine clones (Decr. 25/10/2006).

The range of phytopathological analyses that the CAV laboratory offers to its customers can be consulted in the Service Specification.

The request for genetic-health analyses to the laboratory must be sent by filling out the ANALYSIS REQUEST form.
