Agronomy - Bertin Instruments


    Agronomy researches gathering GMO analysis, food allergies and plant studies, often require to grind hard samples such as seeds, roots or frozen food which are particularly hard to grind.

    A major application for the Precellys is agronomic research.

    Most soft samples types such as leaves are relatively easy to homogenize. However, hard samples such as seeds, roots or frozen food can be particularly difficult to grind. Complete grinding in dry or liquid conditions is needed to extract high quality DNA, RNA or protein for further downstream processing. For applications such as microarray or sequencing analysis, it is important to maintain reproducibility amongst biological replicates during nucleic acid extraction. It is particularly interesting to identify species, GMO and understand their development mechanisms. Moreover, allergen studies can be performed more efficiently thanks to the capacity to grind in dry condition.
