Products for plant tissue culture


Plant tissue culture generally refers to the in vitro culture of all parts of the plant under aseptic conditions. This technique has wide applications in several fields. These applications are generally classified into three categories: basic research, environmental issues and commercial applications.
Plant tissue culture is a technique widely known for the production of a large number of genetically identical seedlings.
The science of plant tissue culture forms the basis of various fields such as agriculture, horticulture and plant biotechnology. This is an area of applied science that consists of the aseptic culture of cells, tissues, organs and their components under defined chemical and physical conditions in vitro. This science follows a basic concept in which the body or organ of the plant or any tissue can be dissected into smaller parts called "explants" and any explant can develop into a whole plant. This concept led to the development of an effective technique called in vitro propagation.
