Inspecting for live organisms is the main method used to verify efficacy of phytosanitary treatments. Evaluating whether small, immobile organisms such as eggs, pupae and scale insects are alive or dead usually involves either checking morphological criteria or rearing them to observe development. These methods can be inaccurate, impractical and time consuming; thus, better methods are needed. To evaluate the potential for developing enzyme-based viability assays, we used electrophoretic gels… Expand
