Plant Science is essential to human life as plants produce all of the world's food either directly or indirectly. They also provide raw materials, pharmaceuticals and offer renewable sources of energy.
The genetic manipulation of plants and plant analysis has been an ongoing science since prehistoric times, when farmers began carefully selecting and maintaining seed from their best crops to plant for the next season. Thus, modern cultured plants are a result of thousands of years of genetic manipulation. Today, cultured plants are improved through both biotechnology and selective breeding.
Automation of large-scale plant analysis methods increases boththroughput and reliability. HAMILTON offers integrated automationsolutions for DNA/RNA isolation, PCR set-up, sequencing reactionpreparation for genotyping, and gene expression studies.
