Learn How to Achieve Gains in Seed-Set and Quality
Predicting seed yields is a big challenge for seed producers. A key factor for achieving high seed yields is sufficient pollination with good quality pollen.
The Ampha Z32, a one-of-a-kind high throughput instrument based on the Coulter counter principle, measures pollen cells in label-free fashion. Adapted by all major seed companies, it offers a great tool to analyze pollen viability, number, size, ploidy, and developmental stage. Since previous viability measurements with staining or germination media were quite cumbersome, the current technique offers unique insights in plant and pollen behavior/dynamics thanks to its high throughput capability and quick sample preparation. Learn how to achieve gains in seed-set and quality with pollen quality monitoring.
