Fytagoras at “Seeds Meets Technology”: Seed Respiration Analyzer for testing of seeds
Fytagoras is a research company located in Leiden, and specialized in seed technology, breeding technology, plant natural compounds, and knowledge on horticulture. Besides contract research, Fytagoras is involved in the development and sales of some devices, amongst others the Seed Respiration Analyzer (SRA).
The SRA analysis is a supporter in seed testing. It provides a fast and accurate measurement of single seed respiration during germination. Depending on the species, an analysis takes 10 to 72 hours. The result is an easy determination of dead, dormant and germinating seeds. Measurements with the SRA deliver fast and accurate information about homogeneity, and changes after seed treatments. In addition, the SRA analysis is excellent for determination of differences between (individual) seeds and seed batches in comparison trials.
Fytagoras will present the use and results of the SRA in a lecture on September 29th on Seed meets Technology, at the location of Vertify. The whole day Fytagoras will be present to meet you.
