LemnaTec LabScanalyzer supports breeding for climate-resilient beans.

Beans are a key protein source for large parts of the world population, but bean plant cultivation is threatened by adverse climatic conditions. Breeding aims at improving future bean varieties for better yield performance under environmental stress. Researchers at the Mexican Colegio de Postgraduados Institute applied a LemnaTec LabScanalyzer [...]

LemnaTec, the digital toolbox for the phenes that follow the genes

Genotype and Phenotype are inseparable. Genes are the building and operating directions of the organism and the phenotypic properties are describing the appearance of the organism in its environment. Consequently, any genotype-related work immediately demands for measuring the resulting phenotypes. Nowadays genomic work is very widespread and makes [...]

Phenoseeder – Next Generation Seed Phenotyping

LemnaTec exclusively licences Phenoseeder from Forschungszentrum Jülich.  Plant growth starts with a seed, and seeds frequently are the core of the harvest. Concise information on seeds is key in plant breeding, research, and gene bank curation. The Phenoseeder, a system for seed imaging, weighing and precision seeding enables individual [...]

Growscreen Rhizo – The Future of Root Phenotyping

LemnaTec exclusively licensed the Growscreen Rhizo from Forschungszentrum Jülich. The Forschunszentrum Jülich Plant Sciences Institute exclusively licensed one of their latest developments in the field of plant phenotyping to LemnaTec GmbH. Frequently, roots are called the hidden half of the plant, but they are as important as shoot and [...]

Building the NEW LemnaTec Germination Scanalyzer at IRRI

LemnaTec is proud to build a new automated Germination Scanalyzer at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI). Our digital seed germination test is combined with automation for germination tray handling. The system contains 720 germination trays stored in shelves inside a climatized room that ensures test-specific germination conditions. Each [...]

Digital Phenotyping in Breeding for Reduced Nitrogen Demand

Nitrogen is a key nutrient in plants, but nitrogen fertiliser is expensive and causes environmental problems. Therefore, breeders look for crops that produce adequate yield while using less nitrogen. Using advanced CRISPR/Cas9 technology, researchers aim at breeding for Sorghum that has lower fertiliser demand compared to current varieties. The [...]

PAG XXVII

LemnaTec will go to PAGXXVII in San Diego, January 12th to 16th 2019. Meet us at booth 513 in the exhibition hall and get to know our recent technological innovations for seed testing and plant phenotyping. LemnaTec’s scientist Todd De Zwaan, PhD, will talk on “Computer Vision Solutions for [...]

Product Launch: LemnaTec PhenoTron

LemnaTec introduces the PhenoTron, a cabinet for imaging under climate-controlled conditions. Temperature, humidity, light, and CO2 can be controlled inside the PhenoTron. Advanced imaging options allow many applications, such as plant growth studies, germination testing, or biotic and abiotic stress testing. Machine learning algorithms facilitate data processing for targeted [...]
