Pythium spp. (Pyth)
Rapid CDIATM Pythium spp. (Pyth) kits are intended for the detection of Pythium spp. in many host plant tissues.
Pythium is a genus of parasitic oomycotes. Pythium-induced root rot and damping-off are very common problems in fields and greenhouses. Pythium spp. tend to be very generalistic and unspecific in their host range and they infect a large range of hosts.
