PlantClinic in the Royal Botanic Garden houses the Plant Pathology and Mycology research program and the Plant Disease Diagnostic Unit.

The PlantClinic offers a wide range of plant disease diagnostics, pathogen detection and plant DNA identification services to the public, industry and government agencies.

This service is not for profit and all revenue goes towards the PlantClinic service, development of new diagnostic techniques and research into plant diseases that threaten our forests, parks and gardens.


Plant diseases threaten our biodiversity and have a devastating impact on our native flora and fauna. Diagnostics is the first step in plant disease management and is integral to our future plant health and conservation efforts.
