Introducing the new Ampha Z40 Pollen Analyzer

Pollen Cell Analysis with the Ampha Z40

The Ampha Z40 is a new high-end laboratory instrument for pollen analysis and succeeds the proven Ampha Z32.

It covers all needs for efficient pollen analysis from plant breeding to seed production. An innovative technological platform ensures accurate analysis of pollen viability and pollen concentration in just one measurement.

Pollen Analysis: Universal, Efficient and Flexible


Measure pollen of all crops: We provide guidelines for more than 250 species. In addition, developmental stages of microspores can be identified for a more efficient DH (doubled haploid) production.


The Ampha Z40 relies on a standardized method to provide accurate pollen information for use along the whole process from variety development and line selection to commercial seed production.


The Ampha Z40 offers full flexibility in settings and gating strategy to cover all pollen research tasks. It allows the development of own sampling and measurement protocols.

The Asian Solanaceous Round Table Conference

The Asia and Pacific Seed Association and the Indian Council of Agricultural Research are organizing the Asian Solanaceous Round Table (ASRT), a conference bringing together experts in solanaceous breeding and research with the goal to overcome Solanum, Capsicum productivity challenges in Asia. The conference will be held in Bangalore, India, from May 11 to 13, 2022.

Breeding for Heat Tolerance using the Amphasys Pollen Analyzer

Viable pollen is crucial for obtaining high fruit and seed yield. However, facing global climate change pollen development of solanaceous plants is highly affected by abiotic stresses, such as heat, drought, and radiation. One approach to solving this problem lies in breeding more heat-tolerant lines.

Because of his vast experience in the field of pollen development, Dr. Darío Sanchez has been invited to speak about phenotyping lines for pollen viability. 

He will present practical application examples for monitoring pollen quality with Amphasys’s Impedance Flow Cytometer. In addition, he will explain how the information provided by the Ampha P20 Pollen Analyzer can be used along all stages from early research in plant breeding up to commercial seed production.
