Amphasys at ASTA Seed Meeting 2019

Amphasys at ASTA Seed Congress 2019

On-Demand Pollination for Corn Seed Production

Discover the benefits of pollen analysis in seed production:

  • – Higher yields
  • – Increased purity
  • – Lower cost of goods

Pollen quality analysis is the key to optimizing the pollination process and hence drive yield improvements, save production costs and increase the quality of your seed. Come see our solutions on the Seed Expo Tour on Thursday at 10:00 am and at the Ag Innovative Showcase on Tuesday at 1:00 pm.

Visit the pollen experts at booths #1123 and #1125 at the ASTA Seed Congress and we are happy to show you the technologies that make the difference!

PowerPollen harnesses optimum pollen management by providing seed producers better pollination at lower costs, resulting in a higher return on investment.

The heart of the PowerPollen solution is Amphasys’s high throughput pollen analyzer that enables data-driven pollen quality monitoring and drives yield in plant breeding and seed production.

Neutec Group offers state of the art technologies to enhance any lab performance in the Biotechnology and Agriculture laboratories. Their equipment offers unprecedented analysis for seeds, pollen, and Agro studies. At ASTA they will showcase the Ampha™ Z32 pollen analyzer, manufactured by Amphasys and utilized by Power Pollen – come see it on the Innovation Tour Thursday, December 12, 2019, 10:00 am – 11:30 am.

Marco Di Berardino will be attending the 1st ExoFlowMetry Meeting

Amphasys at 1st ExoFlowMetry Meeting in Rome

Single Cell Analysis with Impedance Flow Cytometry

The potential of flow cytometry (FC) is still large in areas different than the clinical and biomedical applications, for which it is widely applied since the ’60s of the last century. High process stability, multiparametric and analytical precision are typical features for FC, all well suited to different and unconventional (exotic) applications. New fields of application such as pollen analysis and plant breeding, diary production, brewery, winemaking, fish and animal farming, and genomics, inner and outer water quality control, are now available to FC characterization and manipulation, and more and more are fast developing. 

Amphasys as one of the leading companies for practical applications of Impedance Flow Cytometry is proud to be part of the First International Workshop on Exotic Flow Cytometry from November 13 – 15, 2019 in Rome and will present its Ampha Z32 Impedance Flow Cytometer.


Pollen Analysis for Cucurbita & Malvacea Pollen Made Easy​

Measuring Large Pollen With a Size of Up to 200 µm

Even the largest pollen of up to about 200 µm can now be analyzed with the Ampha Z32 Pollen Analyzer. Species with large pollen such as pumpkin, squash and zucchini (Cucurbita maxima, C. pepo, C. moschata and other C. species) as well as cotton, ocra and hibiscus (and other species of Malvacea family) can now be measured with the new 400 µm AmphaChip. 

In order to ensure smooth measurements with the new 400 µm AmphaChip, the Amphasys R&D experts have developed two new AmphaFluid Buffers, AF8 and AF9 which prevent rapid sedimentation of big pollen.

Ask for our “Large Pollen Kit” containing all the materials needed to get started. For more information please have a look at our information sheet.

Amphasys Cancer Cell Viability

Monitoring of Yeast and Insect Cells in Biotechnology

Rapid Determination of Cell Viability by Impedance Flow Cytometry

In a collaboration with the University of Basel and the Doppelleu Boxer Brewery, we analyzed insect cell cultures and beer fermentations with our Ampha Z32 Impedance Flow Cytometer. The intriguing results were used to optimize the production processes.

Based on these findings we published an article in the journal “Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology” on the determination of cell status, cell viability and optimal harvest time in eukaryotic cell cultures.

Pollen Quality and the seed industry. Lecture by Dr. Rutgher van Zwieten

Amphasys Lecturing at Seed Meets Technology

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.

Learn how to achieve gains in seed-set and quality with pollen quality monitoring and join Dr. Ruthger van Zwieten for his lecture at the Seed Meets Technology Meeting in Zwagdijk from September 24-25, 2019.J
