It all start with breeders. The development of new cultivars is perhaps the most important means of improving quality traits and yields, and dramatic improvements have been achieved in the “green revolution”.
Extensive testing and analysis is a key factor of success when selecting and evaluating new varieties, and Perten Instruments has worked with breeding companies for many years. The fact that the speed and quality of analysis is important for the development time and the quality of new line development has been a cornerstone in our product development.
Our products and solutions give breeders unique opportunities to bring new, innovative cultivars to the market.

Measuring Oil and Water in Seeds using the MQC Benchtop NMR Analyser. The breeding, cultivation and processing of seeds to obtain vegetable oil is a major global industry. The amount of oil in seeds and water in seeds are critical parameters which need to be understood at all stages of the industry from plant breeding through commercial agriculture to milling and processing. Oils derived in this manner are used in foodstuffs, the manufacture of biofuels and as a chemical feedstock for many products.
