Lifeasible Released a Platform Based on High-throughput Plant Phenotyping
Lifeasible, one of the innovating plant biotechnology companies, provides various plant physiological trait analysis services under normal and stress conditions. Now, the company releases a state-of-the-art platform based on high-throughput plant phenotyping that offers methods and techniques for automated trait sensing, data acquisition, and data analysis.
When it comes to breeding, gene mapping, crop management, as well as understanding how plants develop and monitoring the environment, high-throughput phenotyping (HTP) offers a wealth of valuable information. HTP technologies, when compared with manual phenotype measurements, not only save a significant amount of labor and time, but also make it possible to obtain effective data with a large number of samples, high temporal resolution, and high precision.
The newly launched HTP platform at Lifeasible offers high-quality quantitative plant phenotype data under normal or stress growth conditions. These data include, but are not limited to, a wide range of phenotypic characteristics, physiological parameters, and soil and environmental data:
|• Seed germination status
|• Tiller number
|• Plant stress response
|• Transpiration rate
|• Plant height
|• Flowering time
|• Photosynthesis rate
|• Drought critical point
|• Stem diameter
|• Yield-related traits
|• Stomatal conductance
|• Fertilizer uptake and optimization
|• Leaf number and area
|• Plant relative water content
|• Water use efficiency
|• Soil moisture
Moreover, Lifeasible employed a collection of advanced sensors, including digital RGB imaging, 3D laser scanning, thermal infrared (IR) imaging, multi and hyperspectral imaging, fluorescence imaging, and environmental sensors to ensure the delivery of exceedingly accurate and repeatable data sets.
“Using a system based on the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum, we have created a high-throughput method for measuring the response of the entire plant to various environments. This system ensures the delivery of highly accurate and repeatable data sets by having the ability to collect real-time data from all plant samples throughout the entire growing season.” Commented Isla, one of the representative speakers from Lifeasible.
