Basic diagnosis


Diagnostics are possible at different levels. Standard is the "Basic Diagnosis". In this, the material is photographed and examined visually and microscopically. This is often sufficient to determine the cause. If further investigation is required, contact will be made about any further steps to be taken.

There are many types of follow-up tests available. Material is often plated to determine which bacteria or fungus is causing the abnormality. If unknown fungi or bacteria are found, further DNA testing for the identity of the pathogen may be performed. Material can also be tested for viruses or nematodes present. Specifically for hyacinths, there is a rapid test for Dickeya, aggressive snot with same-day results.
