Our laboratory located in Dresden Tolkewitz, Germany, exists since 1956. Since 2011 the laboratory is also certificated after Naktuinbouw Elite Crop regulations . Our assortment includes many certified varieties.
The tissue culture lab is dedicated to micropropagation of bed and balcony plants. The primary advantage of in vitro cultivation is the fast and efficient production of pathogen-free stock plant material on a large scale.
Production and maintenance of pathogen-free plants
Production of genetically identical plants (plant propagation by cloning)
Cultivation from embryos (particularly with difficult-to-reproduce plants)
The diagnostic unit within the PAC lab is competent in diagnosis of different plant pests and diseases. Methods used for diagnosis involves bacterial culture, immunofluorescence tests, serological and molecular tests.
Thereby you know if your plants are healthy.
Heat therapy and subsequent micropropagation guarantee healthy plant material.
Build-up of stock plant material gets accelerated and independent from season.
If required we keep your healthy plant material under sterile conditions save from infection until demanded.
