Reagents for the detection of plant pathogens (viruses, bacteria, fungi and phytoplasma).  Special equipment and disposables for the preparation of plant samples and liquid handling.  Ready-to-use kits.


The rapid one-step assay AgriStrip, developed and manufactured by BIOREBA, is based on lateral flow immunochromatography and is very fast. The test has been developed to confirm the presence of a plant pathogen in samples with suspicious symptoms. Such a sample is homogenized and a few drops of the homogenate are transferred to a cuvette.
The strip is dipped into the extract and the result can be read within a few minutes. A positive result is seen as a colored band at the test line, whereas the colored band at the control line should always appear. Test strips can be kept as permanent records.
The performance of the test is very easy and there is no need for special laboratory equipment. Therefore, the AgriStrip is especially suitable when testing is required on-site, such as in greenhouses or fields.

BIOREBA AgriStrip-Magnetic

The innovative rapid assay AgriStrip-magnetic, developed and produced by BIOREBA, is a lateral-flow immunochromatographic test based on an antigen-antibody reaction combined with Magnetic Bead Technology enabling the preceding enrichment of the antigen. A plant extract is first incubated with magnetic beads coated with pathogen-specific antibodies. These beads are then separated from the extract with a magnet and re-suspended in a small volume of running buffer. Finally, a strip is inserted and the concentrated beads migrate upwards through the strip and brown colored lines will become visible.
Both test and control lines become visible with positive extracts (containing the pathogen), whereas negative samples produce only the upper control line. Intense coloration is reached within 10-20 min and the results can be registered.
The performance of the test is very easy and there is no need for special laboratory equipment. The AgriStrip-magnetic is especially suitable when testing is required on-site, such as in greenhouses or fields.

Nitrile Glove is one of the highest quality brands available today. The quality exceeds industry standards (ASTM D 6319) by minimizing the number of critical defects (AQL 1.5). Nitrile Glove is continuously tested for possible development of sensitivity to prevent skin irritation.  Nurses and doctors use Nitrile gloves in high-stress environments, high contamination areas, as well as when handling hazardous chemicals. Nitrile Glove is preferred by many healthcare workers because of the extra protection. Most healthcare facilities use a combination of latex or vinyl exam gloves with nitrile exam gloves. In such cases, the latex or vinyl glove is used as the all-purpose medical glove.

Haemacytometer Counting Chambers

Neubauer, Fuchs Rosenthal, Bright line, Cover-glasses

A specimen slide which is used to determine the concentration of cells in a liquid sample. It is frequently used to determine the concentration of blood cells (hence the name “hemo-”) but also the concentration of sperm cells in a sample. The cover glass, which is placed on the sample, does not simply float on the liquid, but is held in place at a specified height (usually 0.1mm). Additionally, a grid is etched into the glass of the hemocytometer. This grid, an arrangement of squares of different sizes, allows for an easy counting of cells. This way it is possible to determine the number of cells in a specified volume.

Dynagria is a formulated tablet product that contains only one active ingredient, the auxin Indole-3-Butyric Acid, also known as "IBA".
The inert ingredient IBA is universally utilised in the agriculture and horticulture sectors to induce the development of roots, to enhance the performance and quality of the crop.
Dynagria when diluted is directly applied on the cuttings or by spraying it on the stumps or sprouts, to promote the initiation of the formation of adventitious roots and re-establishing the radical system of the sugarcane plants. The radical neo-formation of the roots induces a greater development of the bio-mass of the sugar cane plants, enlarging its vigour and resistance to adverse conditions in the environment, resulting in the increase of the crop.


  • 8 Tablets x 6

Makler Counting Chambers

Sperm count performed from undiluted specimen. The number of spermatozoa counted in any strip of 10 squares of the grid indicates their concentration in millions/ml. No additional factors are necessary for calculation. The depth of 10 microns eliminates blurring and allows sperm to move freely. The applied sample is observed in one focal plane.

The grid is in the cover glass. No need to insert a grid into the microscope eye piece and remove it when not required. Economical reusable - Easily cleaned with a non-bleach disinfectant solution.

Observation of colour fringes at the four contact points. Provides a test for accuracy. The cover glass can never be raised by the applied sample. Repeated use with complete accuracy without calibration.

PROPPER Vapor Line

Vapor Line Integrator is a physicochemical steam sterilization monitor which relies on the migration of a dark coloured chemical melt along a paper wick to signal sterilizing (green for pass) or non-sterilizing (red for fail) exposure conditions.


The extent to which the chemical melt travels along the wick (length of run) is quite reproducible and depends on:

  1. the presence of saturated steam

  2. the exposure temperature and,

  3. the time of exposure.


These are the three critical variables of steam sterilization. Vapor Line Integrator will accurately monitor all variables and integrate the effects of each into a stable, easy-to-read, ark colour bar display. Vapor Line will literally PASS or FAIL the steam-processed colour interpretation of the bar is required.

The waterBOB® is a water containment system that holds up to 378 litres of fresh drinking water in any standard bathtub in the event of an emergency. Constructed of heavy duty food grade plastic, the waterBOB® keeps water fresh and clean for drinking, cooking, washing and flushing. Water stored in an open bathtub, with dirt, soap film and exposure to debris will spoil and become useless.

The waterBOB® is very easy to use. Simply lay the liner in any standard bathtub, attach the fill sock to the faucet and fill the bladder to capacity, which takes approximately 20 minutes. A siphon pump is included to easily dispense the water into jugs or pitchers. Never wait in line again to buy expensive bottled water! Be prepared with the waterBOB®.
