Seed Respiration Testing

Introducting a new system for Seed Quality Evaluation: Seed Respiration Analyser (SRA)

  • A fast and precise measurement of oxygen consumption seed by seed.

  • Oxygen consumption is directly related to energy use.

  • Energy use of the seeds can give us new insights, for example on germination.

  • Test is non-destructive (seeds can be further tested in more conventional ways).

  • Measurements can be customized for specific purposes.

Features and Capabilities

The new SRA system has been developed by our partner Fytagporas and has been tested and verified on a wide variety of seeds.

The system has been designed for ease-of-use and comprises the following features:

  • Automated, Reproducible, Objective system to measure seed (plant) metabolism during germination

  • Four adjustable temperature-controlled zones

  • Different parameters of the germination trajectory can be evaluated and compared between different seed lots and/or treatments

  • Correlation with seed quality (aging, shelf-life control)

  • Evaluations of different coatings

  • Custom made evaluations

  • Developed by our partner Fytagoras
