Flow Cytometry

OPAL offers state-of-the-art flow cytometry services to support the agriculture and food sector.

Our services enable us to rapidly characterize microbial, plant and animal samples, and to provide insights into the reproductive analyses of seeds. Our services are also available for measuring plant DNA content or ploidy (the number of complete sets of chromosomes in a cell).

With the ability to analyze tens of thousands of cells at a time, flow cytometry is contributing to accelerated plant breeding, enabling breeders to develop and study new plant samples much faster, and providing the agriculture and food sectors with decision-making information about the microbial, plant animal samples.
