At the upcoming International Plant & Animal Genome conference in San Diego Amphasys will present its “lab-on-chip” technology which enables efficient and reproducible determination of pollen viability, ploidy and developmental stages of microspores. In a collaboration with New York based Neutec Group, the highly innovative solutions from Amphasys are now made available to customers in the U.S.A. and Canada.
Innovation made in Switzerland: In connection with the IHZ-Price ceremony where Amphasys was awarded for “exceptional accomplishments in development and design of innovative, technology-oriented and know-how based products, processes and services” by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce of Central Switzerland (IHZ), the Swiss newspaper “Neue Luzerner Zeitung” has published a report about Amphasys.
Ampha Z30 is now more mobile than ever: With our new rechargeable batteries the Instrument can be operated independent of any power plug. A battery provides power for about 4 to 5 hours. They are available as single pieces, as a double battery kit or as part of the mobility kitincluding a robust transport case and a 12 V car adapter.
Inspired by requests from users and based on our own experience we now provide three support and maintenance plans.
Amphasys was awarded for “exceptional accomplishments in development and design of innovative, technology-oriented and know-how based products, processes and services” by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce of Central Switzerland (IHZ). IHZ points out that Amphasys has succeeded in providing an innovative technology to easily analyze the pollen quality as a basis for the production of high-quality seed.
Inspired by the success of our Amphacademy we have created a series of Amphasys tutorial movies to share our best practice recommendations with the whole Amphasys user community. Check them out for easy setup in the lab or mobile use in the field, for sample preparation, maintenance and software handling including tips and tricks.
Predicting seed yields under changing environmental conditions is a big challenge for seed producers. Sufficient pollination with good quality pollen is a key factor in achieving high seed yields. In his talk, Dr. Marcel Ottiger discusses how pollen quality monitoring, from pollen collection to storage and pollination facilitates more accurate predictions of the seed set.
