SMART TECH SOLUTION
Containerized tissue culture lab
The ViLab is a plug-and-play ‘containerized’ tissue culture laboratory, creating a low threshold entry into tissue culture production. It has all the benefits of a regular laboratory, combined in three 40ft shipping containers. The lab complies with all phytosanitary requirements thanks to the sterile laboratory conditions. It is equipped with areas for cutting plants, preparing media, and has a controlled environment multi-layer growing setup.
What we offer
- Three 40ft containers
- Kitchen area
- Cutting area (shown above)
- Climate controlled propagation area
- Multi-layer LED trolleys (shown above)
- Temporary immersion bioreactor system (shown above) (optional)
- Consultancy & protocol development
What we offer
- Automated media dispensing
- Automated filling and seeding
- Automted Sealing
- Selecting, grading and transplanting
The containers are set as a plug-and-play system, the only requirements are a flat surface to place the containers, as well as electrical and drainage connections. The lab can be up and running in a matter of weeks and will be delivered completely turnkey.
Temporary Immersion Bioreactor System
One of the key components is the use of smart-tech equipment, such as the Temporary Immersion Bioreactor system. All plantlets are immersed into the nutrient solution in single-use bottles, without having to stick them manually in media like agar. This vastly reduces labor compared to traditional methods.
One of our added services is that we provide full training for your staff. This makes it possible to start without any knowledge about tissue culture. The staff will be trained during a 3-month crash course at the lab in The Netherlands, so you are able to run a plant laboratory on your own.
