We Are Phenotyping!

Providing an understanding of significant biotic problems by extracting and quantifying data from biological images

LemnaTec’s goal is to quantify human vision on organisms. Whatever images we take for whatever purposes: The first step will always be to generate reproducible and scientifically sound images in a wide range of light wavelengths – mostly going far beyond human vision. All findings are stored and analysed automatically. They can be re-analysed at any later point in time, generating image-derived values for a huge amount of quantitative parameters according to varying interests and needs.

LemnaTec is the Global Leader in Plant Phenomics

 

Science testing is all about effect monitoring and quantification. Depending on the aim of the test design and data analysis, evaluations vary widely and help to generate new information.

Our Scanalyzer Plant Phenomics Platform is designed to link Genotype and Genotype information together in the field of

  • High Throughput Plant Phenotyping
  • High Content Plant Phenomics
  • Root and shoot Phenotyping
  • Infield Phenotyping
  • High precision Plant Phenotyping in Growth Chambers

In ecotoxicology deviations from control growth or behaviour are seen as toxic effects. At the same time the results of nematode, cell culture or fish embryo testing may identify new active ingredients for human or animal care products. In plant protection, the screening of aphid, fungi and plant/animal growth inhibition or development leads to detecting new substances for the protection of future crops. The development of specific growth patterns under stress conditions helps to identify particular gene functions in plant phenotyping, which then in turn become key elements in plant breeding.

LemnaTec has been developing imaging, image analysis automatisation and data handling modules and strategies that fit all these varied needs of research and production in today’s world, thus enabling our customers to design and develop products suitable to meet future challenges.
