CymMV & ORSV
Rapid CDIATM CymMV & ORSV kits are intended for the detection of both Cymbidium mosaic virus (CymMV) & Odontoglossum ringspot virus (ORSV) in infected orchid.
Cymbidium mosaic virus (CymMV) and the Odontoglossum ringspot virus (ORSV) are two of the most prevalent and economically important viruses affecting cultivated orchids worldwide. Infected plants can reduce plant vigor and have less desirable flowers or other problems, causing significant financial losses to orchid growers. The virus has not often been reported in wild orchid populations. The virus is spread throughout commercial orchid collections by contaminated tools and pots during division of plants and harvest of flowers; highlighting the importance of virus detection.
