- Changing the Playing Field: How PathogenDx’s D3 Array Enables Rapid and Accurate Molecular TestingMore »
By Susan Evans
What if you could create a testing environment that enhances the ability for a clinical sample, such as a bacterium responsible for an infection, to find and bind to a molecular detection probe? If you could, you would have the potential to significantly increase the testing speed, improving patient outcome and care, while also increasing the accuracy and sensitivity of the laboratory test.

By Austin Rueda
Cannabis spp. is host to many bacterial pathogens of immediate concern to public health and safety. These bacterial pathogens can be broken down into categories of specific interest such as Total Aerobic Bacteria, Bile Tolerant Gram-Negative Bacteria, Total Enterobacteriaceae, and Total Coliform Bacteria.
- Octa™ Autoprep Station: Manage Prep, Boost ProfitabilityMore »
At PathogenDx, we never stop innovating ways to drive product safety from harmful pathogens while delivering cost-savings for labs on the front lines of regulatory testing. To separate yourself from your competition in Cannabis testing, you must offer solutions that are both highly accurate, but also operationally efficient, to create sustainable margins.
- Herd Mentality: Virus Co-Infections In PlantsMore »
By Shaun Stice, PhD
While most virus infections in plants may be of a single strain, it is possible for multiple viruses to infect the same plant. Plant virus co-infections can have severely negative outcomes for the infected plant depending on the viruses involved in the co-infection.
- Why do the New COVID-19 Variants Matter?More »
By Rick Eggers and Dr. Mike Hogan
A Little Variant History.
SARS-CoV-2 is a simple virus, which presents a single protein (Spike) on its surface. Thus, Spike serves as a primary point of interaction between the virus and human cells and between the virus and the human immune system.
- What is Hop Latent Viroid?More »
By Shaun Stice, PhD
Cannabis growers today face a pathogen threat to their crop known as Hop Latent Viroid. What is Hop Latent Viroid and what do you need to know about the viroid causing $4 Billion in Cannabis crop losses annually?
- Introducing the PhytoX Assay!More »
By Shaun Stice, PhD
Today, microbial threats wipe out as much as 30% of potential Cannabis and Hemp crop yield, a risk to grows that can’t be ignored. PhytoX from PathogenDx let’s labs help growers with quicker results, and take fast action to remove infected plants before viruses spread and impact potency and growth. The easy-to-use RT-PCR microarray assay detects nine plant viruses driving Cannabis, Hemp, and other agriculture yield losses, all in a single test.
