Molecular methods are being increasingly utilised in the detection of plant pathogens. These methods are fast, accurate and more sensitive for detection. At KEPHIS molecular laboratory, we offers world-class pest diagnostic services using molecular technologies such as Conventional Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), Real time PCR Loop Mediated Isothermal amplification (LAMP) among others. The laboratory supports all other plant health labs and other activities like genetic purity testing for seeds such as maize. This lab has several methods accredited by KENAS under the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 scheme.
