Chemische/physikalische Analysen

chemische Pflanzeninhaltsstoffanalyse

Device name: Beschleunigter Lösemittelextraktor (ASE 200)

Description: The ASE® 200 Accelerated Solvent Extractor is an automated system for extracting organic compounds from a variety of solid and semisolid samples. The ASE 200 accelerates the traditional extraction process by using solvent at elevated temperatures.

Device name: GC-MS und GC-FID

Description: It is a separation process in which the separation of substances is based on the different interaction of the substances to be separated between a stationary and a mobile phase, which are not miscible with each other. Chromatographic analysis methods are used for qualitative and quantitative analysis.

Device name: HPLC-FLD/DAD

Description: It is a separation process in which the separation of substances is based on the different interaction of the substances to be separated between a stationary and a mobile phase, which are not miscible with each other. Chromatographic analysis methods are used for qualitative and quantitative analysis.

Device name: Kjeldahl-Apparatur

Description: System for determination of the total nitrogen based on the Kjeldahl method, which is used for the quantitative nitrogen determination of organic substances.

Device name: NIR (FT-IR-Spektrometer, Mikroskop)

Description: Near infrared spectroscopy is a physical method for the non-destructive determination of mostly organic molecular compounds. Information about the molecular composition can be read from the reflected spectra. They can be used both for identification ("fingerprint") and for the quantification of substances.

Molekulare Analysen

Device name: Illumina MiSeq

Description: The MiSeq System is used for GBS analysis (Genotyping by Sequencing). With the MiSeq cluster generation, amplification, sequencing and data analysis, all is united in one machine. It is capable of automated Paired-End-Reads with up to 15 GB per run, delivering over 600 bases of sequence data per read.

Device name: BioRad CFX96 Real-Time System

Description: The BioRad CFX96 Real-Time System is used for allelic discrimination of KASP (kompetitiv allelspecific PCR) with FAM and HEX as fluorophores, the software will automatically call the alleles for your samples based on their position in the allelic discrimination plot. It is also used for quantification of sequencing libraries (details depends on used quantification kit).

Device name: Applied Biosystems 7500 Fast Real-Time PCR System

Description: The Applied Biosystems 7500 Fast Real-Time PCR System is used for allelic discrimination of KASP (kompetitiv allelspecific PCR) with FAM and HEX as fluorophores, the software will automatically call the alleles for your samples based on their position in the allelic discrimination plot. Here ROX is necessary as normalization fluorophore. It is also used for quantification of sequencing libraries (details depends on used quantification kit).

Device name: Applied Systems 3130xl Genetic Analyzer

Description: The Applied Systems 3130xl Genetic Analyzer is used for fragment analysis of DNA fragments marked with fluorescent dyes. The fluorescent fragments are separated using capillary electrophoresis and sized by comparison to a size standard.

Device name: PyroMark ID

Description: The PyroMark ID is used for quantitative analysis of genetic or epigenetic DNA modifications using Pyrosequencing technology. The PyroMark ID is also highly suited for mutation gene expression analysis, microbial identification, resistance typing and methylation analysis.

Physiologische Analyse

morphologisch/physiologische Charakterisierung

Device name: Fluorometer OS1P

Description: Best in class - measures Y(II), ETR, Leaf temp, FV/FM, quenching, & it has FM' correction option included. This instrument provided the most used plant stress measuring protocols. OS1p capability includes the fast measurements: Y(II) or ΔF/FM', ETR, leaf temperature, and FV/FM. It also provides the Hendrickson lake model quenching protocol to allow NPQ, Y(NPQ), and Y(NO) measurements. Rapid light curves are also included.

Device name: Gaswechselfluoreszenz-System GFS-3000FL

Description: The portable GFS-3000 is a high precision system for the assessment of plant photosynthesis (CO2-uptake) or respiration (CO2-release) and transpiration – also in combination with optical measurements. The Portable Gas-Exchange and Fluorescence System GFS-3000 enables wide range climate control. All environmental parameters relevant for plant photosynthesis (CO2, H2O, temperature, light, ventilation and flow) can be controlled automatically and over the full physiological range. Optional fluorescence modules further expand the system’s capability. Experimental protocols for automatic light-curves or automatic CO2-curves can be easily programmed. The GFS-3000 is suitable for controlled laboratory settings as well as demanding field conditions.
