Lecture ‘Seed viability rapid test‘ – by Seedalive
Wednesday, 29 September 15:00 – 15:30
Seedalive has developed a new, efficient and reproducible method for forecasting seed germination (viability). Our method is a dynamic bioassay quantifying a biochemical color change correlating with seed viability. Single seeds are incubated in a reaction solution for 4 hours. Subsequently, by use of AI, it is easy to determine whether the seeds are vital, senescent or in fact already dead. Even dormant seeds can be evaluated. It is also possible to forecast the aging process of seeds and vigour of seedlings.
Our test (so far established for Brassica, Sinapis, and Raphanus) will be offered as a kit of chemicals and protocol, enabling the customer to perform the test himself. In this context, an evaluation of the test via smartphone app is currently developed using artificial intelligence (AI).
Seedalive offers distinct advantages: Our test preserves the seed, is inexpensive, non-hazardous, fast, reliable, easy to perform almost everywhere and resource-conserving, saving up to 99% energy and time.
We look forward welcoming you at our presentation. Please inform us in time if you would like to bring your own Brassicaceae seeds for germination forecast.
