Evaluation of the Global Access Diagnostics botrytis rapid test method

Grapes are typically assessed for grey mould by visual inspection, which is subjective and prone to error. This project investigated Botrytis Alert, a commercially available rapid antigen detection kit as an alternative to current industry practices for grey mould (Botrytis cinerea) detection. Six wine industry participants analysed 376 grape samples and a further 346 samples were analysed by Charles Sturt University. The genus specific nature of the Botrytis Alert kit provided a definitive and rapid quantitative determination of the presence of grey mould in grape samples, superior to visual assessments and other assessment measures, currently used in the wine industry.
