You can use seed health method. I guess you can rely on this method.

Seed health method is a conventional method and cannot be relied upon. In the recent years, Polymerase Chain Reaction method is mostly used. This is a very sensitive and reliable method.

Yes I agree with Rajkumar. PCR method is a reliable method. This technique amplifies and makes it possible to detect specific DNA.

I would suggest you to use ELISA technique. Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay is a technique based on an antibody-antigen reaction. This is used for determination of the presence of specific molecules in a given sample.
