PathSensors, a biotechnology company, plans to expand its pathogen detection abilities in the potato industry through a high-tech potato tuber test.

Furthermore, the said potato tuber test will detect common viruses that could infect or damage potatoes. Through this test, scientists can create a virus biosensor to help growers produce high-quality seeds of potatoes.

Farmers grow tubers in their home states before shipping these tubers to seed certification labs to test for plant disease. But, through this, it can help potato farmers reduce the processing time and expenses in shipping and testing outside the United States.
