Diagnostic Kit for Banana Bunchy Top Virus (BBTV)
The technology uses monoclonal antibody-based enzyme-linked immunoassay for the detection of BBTV. The kit can detect the presence of the virus even in symptomless samples unlike other ELISA-based kits where the virus can only be detected with the presence of symptoms. The technology is cheaper compared to commercial test kits. It is currently used for indexing mother plants prior to micropropagation, surveying the incidence of the disease in areas where BBTV is present or absent, and for plant quarantine purposes.
