Automated Plant Sample Preparation Yields Better Data for Better Crops

By: Fraunhofer USA CMI / Jan 22, 2019 4:37:00 PM / Custom Automation

Individual plant cells can reveal how certain plants thrive in a variety of environments. Studying plant cells in single cell formats promises richer, more detailed data sets than pooling all the information together. However, plant cells can be difficult to isolate without killing the cell. Roots and shoots are often tough and fibrous while leaves are typically broad and tender. Ripping apart..
