Plant Tissue Culture is the way of the future and at Plant Biotech, we offer you an opportunity to be at the leading edge of the market as well as to be able to make significant financial savings.
If you have any favourite exotic varieties or varieties that are difficult to procure/propagate by conventional methods, bring them to us and we will attempt to put them into tissue for you. For full details on introducing your plants into tissue and the exotics now available, please contact us. To know more about Exotic Plants, read this Wikipedia article.
We are also involved in introducing selected exotic plants/hybrids from renowned growers/breeders into tissue. Some of these are world class hybrids involving an exclusive buy back arrangement with the owners of the hybrid line. If you have any interesting plants that may have good commercial potential then please contact us. We can discuss a plan for introducing your plant into tissue.
Tissue culture laboratories usually charge a fee for introducing unique plants into tissue due to the high costs associated. We will work out the best arrangement that will suit your requirements. This means you may not be required to pay a full fee for introducing your selected varieties into tissue. Under certain circumstances, where an exclusive agreement has been established, the fee can be waived fully. The more plants you introduce through us, the better it gets. We maintain and respect the ownership of the plant material to its breeder/grower/owner. We will also ensure you are kept up to date with developments so that you are fully informed throughout the entire process.
Plant Biotech is a medium size operation, flexible enough to create a plan that will suit your requirements.
Tissue Culture Facilities:
A tissue culture laboratory, like a research laboratory, has to adhere to strict standards of cleanliness and good laboratory practices. Our state of the art laboratory on the Sunshine Coast has been accredited by AQIS (Australian Quarantine Inspection Service) as Quarantine Approved Premises for export of tissue culture plants.
Carefully selected plants are put into tissue inside the laboratory. The resulting plantlets are then transferred into our modern greenhouses for further hardening, and remain there until they are ready for sale.
