PlantResearch has a new all-round laboratory in use since the spring of 2017. Equipped with novel standard equipment for a wide range of tests and analyses, we will be able to work more efficiently and we will be increasing our possibilities. The lab is divided into different sections, equipped for different tasks.
In the ‘dirty’ section growing substrate and crop samples will be collected and prepared for further analysis. The instrumental section is equipped with a GC-MS and spectrophotometer to facilitate a number of in-house analyses and to make our quality control task more efficiently.
Product development and improvement is a substantial and important part of our daily job. Hence, the R&D laboratory is a vital part of our organization. Here we test new and improved nutrient extraction methods from raw materials and renewable sources. Additionally, new climate regulated storage places have been installed for all kinds of product stability and preservation tests.
In the (micro)biological lab plants and micro-organisms are subject to investigation. A laminar flow hood, incubator and autoclave enable us to produce axenic cultures of bacteria and fungi.. Additionally, PlantResearch has its own technical workplace and photo studio.
