Quantabio Seed and Crop Testing Solutions

Molecular testing is a critical step in developing new crop technologies and verifying the genetic integrity of a plant. It is also the best method for identifying viruses and pathogens in seeds and plants in an effort to advance agricultural testing and research.

Unfortunately, plants are an especially challenging starting material due to the contaminating presence of PCR-suppressive compounds such as phenols, polysaccharides, and humic acid.

Our ToughMix reagents are formulated to withstand several types of PCR inhibition, which makes them ideal for applications in:

  • New crop development
  • Surveillance testing (GMO)
  • Virus detection

Customer Testimonials
UltraPlex 1-Step ToughMix

"In side-by-side comparison, QuantaBio UltraPlex 1-Step ToughMix out performed ABI TaqPath, ABI TaqMan FastVirus, and ABI AgPath-ID One-Step RT-PCR kits."

Sladana B. | Plant Disease Diagnostician
Extracta DNA Prep for PCR

"I needed to extract DNA from fungal tissue for one of our teaching labs. It worked amazing for further PCR reactions."




Andres P. | University Lab Coordinator
PerfeCTa qPCR ToughMix

"Higher sensitivity, positives at a lower Cq. Great results with plant DNA with high inhibition level."
