Innovation in Tissue Culture

In 2104 we decided to try and make our tissue culture division of our nursery more efficient. We had a number of people manually transplanting tissue cultures into plug trays all day, every day.

It was in 1902 Gottlieb Haberland first started with plant tissue cultures and we realised that the transplanting of tissue cultures in nurseries had not changed since then.

We felt that if we spend enough time on this project, we could come up with an improvement on a process that had existed unchanged for 115 years.

After 3 years of trialling, improvements, more and more 3D models, further improvements and modifications etc. etc., we now have 'Nic-In Systems®' that allows most tissue cultures to be planted in nurseries by automatic transplanters.

The patented 'Nic-In Systems®' is being made available to every laboratory and every nursery around the world.
