In-Vitro propagation of orchids
TARGET-ORIENTED PRODUCTION ACCORDING TO CUSTOMER ORDERS
In order for us to be successful as a contract propagation laboratory and to satisfy our customer’s needs, we continually improve our processes in all areas. Today, our core competence is not only in the long-standing production of orchids in the laboratory, but also in the field of production logistics. More than ever, changing conditions in the orchid market require flexible and precise production according to our customers’ specifications.
By developing our own planning software on the basis of an ERP system, we have prepared ourselves for the future, even for more complex issues. This enables us to actively support the distribution logistics of our partners.
PLANT TISSUE CULTURES ARE THE BASIS OF OUR WORK
We clone plant cells under in vitro conditions to produce pathogen-free (free of viruses, bacteria and fungal diseases) orchids in large quantities. We make use of the fact that plant cells are able to form a complete and independent organism (totipotency). Thus, only a small piece of plant tissue of the orchid to be cloned (mother plant) is needed to produce a genetically absolutely identical orchid.
This process is also known as meristem multiplication.
