EPPO Bulletin 50 (1), 49-68
Abstract: Specific scope - This Standard describes a diagnostic protocol for ' Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum', and for its detection in the psyllid vectors Bactericera cockerelli, Trioza apicalis and Bactericera trigonica. This Standard should be used in conjunction with PM 7/76(5) Use of EPPO diagnostic protocols.
Specific approval and amendment - 2019–09
This Diagnostic Protocol was prepared in parallel to the IPPC Diagnostic Protocol adopted in 2017 on ' Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum' (Annex 21 to ISPM 27; IPPC, 2017). The EPPO Diagnostic Protocol differs in terms of format but it is consistent with the content of the IPPC Standard. With regard to molecular methods, one real-time PCR test used in the EPPO region is included, and more information on the different haplotypes is included as well as additional information on reference accessions.
