Phytophthora is a genus of plant-damaging Oomycetes (water molds), whose member species are capable of causing enormous economic losses on crops worldwide, as well as environmental damage in natural ecosystems. PathSensors has developed a Phytophthora biosensor which is capable of detecting all species of Phytophthora across numerous plant matrices. We work with the USDA, farmers, universities, and private agriculture companies to increase access to clean nursery plants and ensure crops stay healthy in the field. Our Phytophthora detection has been approved and validated by the USDA.
