Tissue Culture Lab

Our laboratory located in Thiendorf, 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.

Advantages of in vitro cultivation

Meristem cultivation: Production and maintenance of pathogen-free plants
Large-scale production: Production of genetically identical plants (plant propagation by cloning)
Embryo Rescue: Cultivation from embryos (particularly with difficult-to-reproduce plants)
Diagnostic and Test Lab: 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.
