LemnaTec Scanalyzers provide a comprehensive range of phenotyping research platforms from bench-top enclosures to systems that monitor large fields.
LemnaTec has developed an automated system to study the reaction of plants subjected to drought or restricted water supplies.
Hyperspectral imaging, the process of capturing images from beyond the visible light spectrum, is widely used for remote imaging of plants. It allows scientists to extract detailed information about the composition and condition of plants under varying imaging conditions such as changing sunlight.
LemnaTec has unveiled the largest field robot in the world, capable of continuously monitoring the development of crops under real growing conditions.
LemnaTec has used its 3D Scanalyzer system to measure parameters that correlate to the biomass of maize, and other grain crops, in time course assessments during plant growth.
LemnaTec’s Chief Scientist Marcus Jansen gave a keynote lecture at the 11th SAPBA symposium organised by the Southern African Plant Breeders' Association in Stellenbosch. The range of applications presented at the conference was broad, ranging from seedlings of crops and vegetables to trees, large crops and fruits.
Greenhouse studies allow scientists to control and monitor key environmental parameters, such as temperature, illumination, humidity and watering, throughout the lifetime of sample plants. However, a significant challenge to greenhouse experiments is the achievable plant density, which is frequently far lower than in the field.
Global Health and Pharma magazine has announced the winners of the 2016 Biotechnology Awards with phenotyping specialist LemnaTec awarded best digital plant phenotyping platform for its pioneering work in field phenotyping.
