EpiLogic – A Tentamus company

EpiLogic GmbH was founded in 1996 by Dr. Friedrich Felsen­stein and Mariele Felsen­stein and has become a leading service provider for the agro­chem­ical industry, research insti­tutes and author­i­ties in Europe. We are specialised in applied phytopathology and related studies on the adap­tion and resis­tance of fungal pathogens on agri­cul­tural and horti­cul­tural crops to fungi­cidal agents.

Our services include In vivo and In vitro pathogen studies, including mole­c­ular analysis. We work with the agro­chem­ical industry, as well as with local and regional author­i­ties and research insti­tutes to research and under­stand local, regional and Euro­pean resis­tance and adap­tion trends against fungicides.

We have vast expe­ri­ence with a large set of hosts, such as cereals, grapevine, apples, straw­ber­ries, toma­toes, rape to pota­toes and others, and pathogens such as different powdery mildews, net blotch, Cercospora leaf spot to Septoria leaf blotch and many others.

Stem rust, also known as cereal rust, black rust, red rust or red dust, is caused by the fungus Puccinia graminis, which causes significant disease in cereal crops

Our Story

Our back­ground

Fungal pathogens are able to adapt towards disease resis­tance of the host (viru­lence forma­tion) and towards modern fungi­cidal compounds (resis­tance forma­tion). Fungal pathogens have a signif­i­cant impact on the global food supply and food safety. At the same time, meeting EU wide sustain­ability goals as stip­u­lated in the EU Green Deal, requires disease control by preci­sion farming with suit­able compounds in combi­na­tion and alter­na­tion of different modes of action. This requires reli­able resis­tance and adap­tion moni­toring. The moni­toring data collected and respec­tive risk assess­ment on resis­tance devel­op­ment is a basic require­ment for fungi­cidal active substance and product regis­tra­tion, and approval in the EU. Our exper­tise and services cover this complex set of subjects and topics.

Our approach

Samples from infected plants are collected throughout Europe by us via our Euro­pean sample collec­tion tours (air sampling) for cereals and grapes or sent to EpiLogic by our customers (field samples). Creating a large sample pool we share with our customers through our Joint Sampling program. Giving you the benefit of a large Euro­pean sample pool for your studies.

With studies in minia­tur­ized test systems, In vivo and In vitro, as well as mole­c­ular analysis we collect data on resis­tance devel­op­ments across a vast subset of hosts and pathogens. The data collected is inter­preted by our scien­tists regarding the type, the dynamics, as well as the regional differ­en­ti­a­tion of the adap­ta­tion and resis­tance forma­tion. We provide you a detailed effect and impact analysis of the adap­ta­tion and resis­tance forma­tion seen in our studies, including multi-year trends across Europe.

Your advan­tage

We have over 25 years of expe­ri­ence with fungal pathogen studies and gained a deep under­standing in multi-year cross-Euro­pean resis­tance trends from a large set of pathogens and hosts. From cereals, grapevine, apples, straw­ber­ries, toma­toes, rape to pota­toes and others. From different powdery mildews, net blotch, cercospora leaf spot to septoria leaf blotch and many others.

With our Epilogic Euro­pean sampling tours for cereals and grapes and our Joint Sampling program, we collect, share and give you the benefit of a large Euro­pean sample pool for your fungi­cide sensi­tivity studies.
