Laboratory of resistance to frost

The laboratory aims to evaluate the resistance to frost of spring and fall of different genetic material.

The facilities and equipment of the laboratory are:

  • Cold-chamber with an area of 9 m2 with temperature range of -20 to + 40ºC controlled by an automaton.
  • Conductivity meter CyberScan CON 1500 (EUTECH Instruments) for measuring the conductivity of tested tissues, orbital shaker (SELECTA) and Memmert EU-800 stoves used in conductivity measuring protocol.
  • MINIPAM fluorimeter (WALZ) for measuring fluorimety of tested tissues.
