In Europe, potato cyst nematodes (Globodera spp) can occur singly or as mixed populations and their diagnosis and quantification is a key step in their management. In July 2010 a new EU Directive (2007/33/EC) on the control of PCN came into force and the new statutory measure has resulted in a large increase of soil sampling. DNA approaches cannot distinguish viable from non-viable nematodes. Therefore, this research is aimed at developing a cheap, fast and reliable test that can identify the two species and quantify viable nematodes.
