ELISA kit for Phialophora gregata

It was reported at the 1992 Annual Meeting of the American Phytopathological Society that an ELISA test method has been developed for the detection of Phialophora gregata (EPPO A1 pest) on soybeans. According to the authors the ELISA kit showed a strong specificity to P. gregata when tested against three P. gregata isolates, with little crossreaction to six soybean saprophytes, 16 pathogenic fungal isolates and healthy soybean leaves.
