- A variety of crops are produced by tissue culture and then grown on as young plants in our nursery, or supplied to our customers as direct TC.
- Tissue culture, also known as micropropagation, ensures the exact duplication of genetics and the protection of your most valuable clones
- There is a common misconception that tissue culture implies genetic modification
- It is important to note that genetic modification is the manipulation of an organisms genome using biotechnology which changes the genetic make up of the cells
- There is no genetic modification of the plants through the TC process
- Micropropagation uses the techniques of tissue culture for the sole purpose of multiplication without changes to the cells.
- Throughout the process, developed protocols are stringently following to ensure that the plants remain 'True to Type' with no diversification in quality or yield from the known mother plant.
- We are well experienced in handling large volume production, from both our Australian and overseas contract production laboratories and also through our young plant nursery
