Distribution of soluble carbohydrates in grapevine tissues depending on the life cycle – determination by capillary electrophoresis - Case Study
Capillary electrophoresis system Capel 105-M
Instituto de Biología Agrícola de Mendoza
The distribution of soluble carbohydrates affects fruit yield and quality and depends on plant physiology. Thus, sugar analysis in plants is important throughout the entire growth process. Lumex Instruments offered the Institute of Agricultural Biology of Mendoza the Capillary Electrophoresis method for determination of sugars in different tissues and phenology, with minimal sample preparation.
The researchers from the Institute of Agricultural Biology of Mendoza needed to determine grapevine sugars on different phenological grown stages. The samples included mature and young leaves, berries, and roots.
