Together with the McGill Plant Phenomics group LemnaTec has designed a Scanalyzer 3D Plant Phenomics Platform plus a Scanalyzer HTS high precision phenotyping center to be installed on McGills rooftop Greenhouse
The combination of the two platforms ensures McGill Plant Phenomics Group has a unique ability, within a restricted rooftop footprint, to confront the phenotyping bottleneck. The Scanalyzer HTS provides specialized small plant and organism phenotyping via integrated software solutions coupled with sensors to perform:
Two industry leaders in plant science research work together to launch the next generation in Plant Phenomics research.
LemnaTec and Conviron announce a collaboration to deliver a new generation of plant Phenomics platforms. The novel systems will integrate LemnaTec Scanlyzer3D technology with Conviron’s expertise in controlled environments. Solutions will be engineered to each client’s unique requirements.
"...LemnaTec has provided us with a unique, integrated package of cutting edge imaging and conveyor belt technologies to place at the core of The Plant Accelerator facility. Without this, we would have taken many more years to get to the position in which we are now, where we are able to image and process large numbers of plants, and thus undertake forward genetic studies of plant growth and response to their environment. Such studies would not previously have been possible, so, with this LemnaTec equipment, in our facility, we can now undertake experiments not previously feasible.
Data Handling and Data mining is the most challenging task in modern Plant breeding using Plant Phenomic technologies. In Cooperation with Keygene scientist José Lima-Guerra LemnaTec CEO Matthias Eberius have published a detailed information on how LemnaTec´s Plant Phenotyping Platform can help researchers to understand this challenge.
